Zamanda geriye doğru yolculuk yapmanın en kısa yolu tarih okumaktır

 

 

İhsan Sezal

(1947- ….)

The stairs

How many steps has this stair?

Everyday we climb it again and again

 

Afar the lights appear and disappear

Afar a bird flips its wings

The sun rises an afar land

 

How many steps has this stair?

As we climb the stair stretches itself afar.
