 The Ocean’s Mirrors

I am a farmer from the south. My heart was made from the sun rays and my pulse is a birds’ chant. At the twilight, I try to kiss the faces of fairies and in the evening  I drown delightedly in a hidden ocean. Now, you can see my shadowed soul which sits on the blue chair with her silky veil. She always attempts to catch theses melodic colors and planted them on the ocean’s mirrors.


The Whisper  of the Sea

Here, is our sea with endless dreams. Do you know anything about the whisper of the sea? Do you  see all the smiles which reside behind his veil. The sunset loves the sea, where the sun combs the hair of the fish and draw  smooth seasons on his tales. I saw his dream in a precious moment, they are blue and brilliant. They are our souls.


The River’s Face

The river knows the story. I don’t tell him the secret of our south treasure, but the bean has a gross voice, and you can hear all the news from her. He draws butterflies on our lips and make from our pain a colored breeze. He is warmhearted and his pulse is always hot. From his face, the image of my soul emerges like a dazzled flower. She is blue and sleepy and there is a white spike on her left hand.


Author’s Statement on Beauty

The art is a transfiguration and the writer should listen to  the words’s voices and their wishes. And to accomplish all these targets, the writing should appear with  multi-expressive structures, where the sentences bring the same deep idea, but in different superficial statements. In this mosaic transfiguring system, the sentences appear as mirrors, where every sentence is a mirror to the deep idea and to other one. The mirrors’ system of writing forms an intellectual existence imitates the mosaic where the sentences behave as small colored pieces with harmonious presence.
