From the Book
"God, I Am Here" by Vagif Samadoghlu


An old man is sitting there,
Sitting in front of ashen gray sea
Which is as gray as he is.
His vision blurs in the distance
Which is without horizon.
No, he says, youth has disappeared from earth!

A child is playing there,
Playing among the flowers and grass
Which are as colorful as he is.
He looks at the sun without even squinching his eyes,
And, no, he says, old age has disappeared from the earth.
