Try to catch me,
I come as of old
creaking goes my voice
if I speak
do not let me pass
a minaret
let it fall on me.


Close your eyes, may soul turn to eyes
J. Rumi

A white morning, around in the silence,
flowers lighted
birds flew over
as if it was paradise
the world behind my window:
The world:
“Close your eyes,
may soul turn to eyes
