Are You Ready Children?

Today I shall choose one of you A child on whom falls a shadow, wedged in a corner between lines... A daisy bringing us some suffering from his home Silent in the middle of a blue turning grey, a button of a rose without anyone in the mass of it... A living being full of secrets, the heart of which spreads light While the sun continues running into water, the headlights of space fall in front of him one after another... Say so if you have problems! If you are part of a life full of black points, blended in the night, encircled with ruddy colours, show yourselves... I know that your security guards do not self-protect In spite of the reins of ice on your ways, in which the identity of humans melt, can you determine your destination? Are you ready children? Today I shall choose one of you A child on whom falls a shadow, wedged in a corner between lines... Üzeyir Lokman ÇAYCI Paris, 20.12.2003 Traduit par by Yakup YURT en français French free verse translated into English free verse by Joneve McCormick, 08.10.2005
