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


What did the earth tell you?
After the rain,
It told me of the scent of grass,
The smell of flowers.

What else?
It told me that there is drought,
That there is the burning of crops when they are green,
That there is the forest which is sighing from the sound Of axes,
And so many other things.

What else?
It told me about steaming roofs when it's snowing,
About the train's whistle which is heard from afar,
And about unnamed graves.

What else?
And again it told me about the way
Which is as long as a man's life,
And which stretches in front of every one who is born...
