    あなたは私の夢である
    どこに今ある
    フェージング夢のよう
    あなたは私の指をすり抜け
    私はあなたの夢をみましょう
    私の夢



    ----

    You are in my dream
    where are you now
    like a fading dream
    you slip past my fingers
    let me dream of you
    dream of Me

    カエルは、ストリームにダイブしたよう
    恋人は愛情を取得
    太陽が上昇すると
    ので、設定する必要があります
    愛情が与えられるように
    愛情が失われている...



    ---

    As a frog dives into stream
    a lover retrieves affection
    as the sun rises
    so must it set
    as affection is given
    Affection is lost...

    To Dardanelles Martyrs


    Şu Boğaz harbi nedir? Var mı ki dünyâda eşi?

    What is that Bosphorus war? Is there an equivalent to it in the world?


    En kesif orduların yükleniyor dördü beşi.

    Four or five of the most dense armies are pressing


    -Tepeden yol bularak geçmek için Marmara’ya-

    In order to go to Marmara finding a way through the hill


    Kaç donanmayla sarılmış ufacık bir karaya.

    To a very small land besieged by many navies.


    Ne hayâsızca tehaşşüd ki ufuklar kapalı!

    What a dishonarable gathering, because of it horizons are overcast.


    Nerde-gösterdiği vahşetle ´bu: bir Avrupalı´

    Where is “This is an European.” with the violance he shows?


    Dedirir-Yırtıcı, his yoksulu, sırtlan kümesi,

    This wild, numb hyena group makes you say this.


    Varsa gelmiş, açılıp mahbesi, yâhud kafesi!

    They came being opened their cages


    Eski Dünyâ, yeni Dünyâ, bütün akvâm-ı beşer,

    Old world, new world, all the nations of men


    Kaynıyor kum gibi, mahşer mi, hakikat mahşer.

    They are boiling like sand, is it Armegeddon?, truely it is.


    Yedi iklimi cihânın duruyor karşında,

    Seven nations of the world stand in front of you.


    Avusturalya´yla beraber bakıyorsun: Kanada!

    You see Australia together with Canada!


    Çehreler başka, lisanlar, deriler rengârenk:

    Faces are different, languages, skins are colourful


    Sâde bir hâdise var ortada: Vahşetler denk.

    There is a simple thing obvious:wildnesses are equal


    Kimi Hindû, kimi yamyam, kimi bilmem ne belâ...

    Some of them are Indian, some of them are cannibal, I dont know what the heck the others.


    Hani, tâuna da züldür bu rezil istilâ!

    This disgraceful invasion is a lowness even for plague


    Ah o yirminci asır yok mu, o mahlûk-i asil,

    Oh that 20. century, that noble thing


    Ne kadar gözdesi mevcûd ise hakkıyle, sefil,

    All of its favored ones are truely wretched.


    Kustu Mehmedciğin aylarca durup karşısına;

    It threw up for months standing in front of dear Mehmets


    Döktü karnındaki esrârı hayâsızcasına.

    It threw out the secrets in its stomach without shame.


    Maske yırtılmasa hâlâ bize âfetti o yüz...

    If the mask wasnt torn, that face would be still adorable for us.


    Medeniyyet denilen kahbe, hakikat, yüzsüz.

    The whore called civilization is truely shameless.


    Sonra mel´undaki tahribe müvekkel esbâb,

    The reasons which cause the destruction at the cursed


    Öyle müdhiş ki: Eder her biri bir mülkü harâb.

    They are so terrible, even each one of them can destroy a land.

    Öteden sâikalar parçalıyor âfâkı;

    Thunderbolts are tearing the horizons to pieces from the other side


    Beriden zelzeleler kaldırıyor a´mâkı;

    Earthquakes lift up the depths from this side.


    Bomba şimşekleri beyninden inip her siperin;

    The thunderbolts of bombs are going down through the brains of every shelter


    Sönüyor göğsünün üstünde o arslan neferin.

    They go out on the chest of those brave soldiers.


    Yerin altında cehennem gibi binlerce lağam,

    There are thousands of underground tunnels like hell under the earth.


    Atılan her lağamın yaktığı: Yüzlerce adam.

    And hundreds of men who the mines thrown burnt.


    Ölüm indirmede gökler, ölü püskürmede yer;

    Sky is bringing down death, earth is spewing out dead.


    O ne müdhiş tipidir: Savrulur enkaaz-ı beşer...

    What a terrible blizzard it is, wreck of men is thrown into the air.


    Kafa, göz, gövde, bacak, kol, çene, parmak, el, ayak,

    Head, eye, body, leg, arm, chin, finger, hand, foot


    Boşanır sırtlara vâdilere, sağnak sağnak.

    They hail onto ridges, valleys


    Saçıyor zırha bürünmüş de o nâmerd eller,

    Those coward hands in armor are scattering


    Yıldırım yaylımı tûfanlar, alevden seller.

    Floods like thunderbolt volleys, ******** from fire


    Veriyor yangını, durmuş da açık sinelere,

    They are giving fire to chests open,

    Missiles splattering cannonballs are more frequent than cannon and gun.


    Kahraman orduyu seyret ki bu tehdide güler!

    Watch the brave army, it laughs at that threat.


    Ne çelik tabyalar ister, ne siner hasmından;

    Neither it wants steel bastions nor it is afraid of its enemy.


    Alınır kal´â mı göğsündeki kat kat iman?

    Is a strong faith a fortress which can be taken?


    Hangi kuvvet onu, hâşâ, edecek kahrına râm?

    Which power can make it bow down to its oppression?


    Çünkü te´sis-i İlahi o metin istihkâm.Because that stronghold is an establishment of God.


    Sarılır, indirilir mevki-i müstahkemler,

    The location of fortified buildings can be surrounded and can be taken


    Beşerin azmini tevkif edemez sun´-i beşer;

    Bu göğüslerse Hudâ´nın ebedi serhaddi;

    As for these chests, they are eternal borders of God.


    ´O benim sun´-i bedi´im, onu çiğnetme´ dedi.

    Asım´ın nesli...diyordum ya...nesilmiş gerçek:

    İşte çiğnetmedi nâmusunu, çiğnetmiyecek.

    Şühedâ gövdesi, bir baksana, dağlar, taşlar...

    Look at the mountains and rocks, they are the bodies of martyrs.


    O, rükû olmasa, dünyâda eğilmez başlar,

    Vurulup tertemiz alnından, uzanmış yatıyor,

    Bir hilâl uğruna, yâ Rab, ne güneşler batıyor!

    Sana dar gelmiyecek makberi kimler kazsın?

    Who can dig the grave which will not be narrow for you?


    ´Gömelim gel seni tarihe´ desem, sığmazsın.

    If I said “lets burry you into history”, you wouldnt fit into


    Herc ü merc ettiğin edvâra da yetmez o kitâb...

    That book isnt enough even for the eras you shook


    Seni ancak ebediyyetler eder istiâb.

    Only eternities can embrace you.


    ´Bu, taşındır´ diyerek Kâ´be´yi diksem başına;

    If I put Kaba around your head saying “This is your grave stone”


    Ruhumun vahyini duysam da geçirsem taşına;

    Sonra gök kubbeyi alsam da, ridâ namıyle,

    Sen ki, İslam´ı kuşatmış, boğuyorken hüsran,

    You, while disappointment was sorrounding and choking Islam


    O demir çenberi göğsünde kırıp parçaladın;

    You broke and tore that iron chain into pieces on your chest.


    Sen ki, rûhunla beraber gezer ecrâmı adın;

    You, your name visits stars with your soul.


    Sen ki, a´sâra gömülsen taşacaksın...Heyhât,

    You, if you were burried into centuries, you would pour out.


    Sana gelmez bu ufuklar, seni almaz bu cihât...

    These horizons cant come to you, this cihat cant embrace you


    Ey şehid oğlu şehid, isteme benden makber,

    Oh martyr son of a martyr; dont want grave from me


    Sana âğûşunu açmış duruyor Peygamber.

    The prophet is waiting you his arms open.

    Dear One Absent This Long While
    by: Lisa Olstein


    It has been so wet stones glaze in moss;
    everything blooms coldly.

    I expect you. I thought one night it was you
    at the base of the drive, you at the foot of the stairs,

    you in a shiver of light, but each time
    leaves in wind revealed themselves,

    the retreating shadow of a fox, daybreak.
    We expect you, cat and I, bluebirds and I, the stove.

    In May we dreamed of wreaths burning on bonfires
    over which young men and women leapt.

    June efforts quietly.
    I’ve planted vegetables along each garden wall

    so even if spring continues to disappoint
    we can say at least the lettuce loved the rain.

    I have new gloves and a new hoe.
    I practice eulogies. He was a hawk

    with white feathered legs. She had the quiet ribs
    of a salamander crossing the old pony post road.

    Yours is the name the leaves chatter
    at the edge of the unrabbited woods.

    @WebMaster will u pls make this thread sticky...


    IN LOVE WITH LOVE

    Falling in love is such a nice feeling
    Makes you young at heart
    Pumps your heart to beat faster
    Everything in your world has colors
    Like looking through a kaleidoscope

    You are excited for every new day
    For you know it brings happiness
    You will be writing new experiences
    As you go through your life's journey
    As it is written in your book of life

    There's a sparkle in your eyes
    With the mention of his name
    The mere sound of his voice
    Brings shivers to your spine
    Elates your senses

    But is it really love for the person
    Or the love for the thought
    The feeling of being wanted
    The feeling of being needed
    The feeling of being in love

    HiNdu na naheeN musalmaan, Baheeye tiranjan taj abhimaan. Sunni na naheeN ham sheeya Sulha kuhl ka maarag leeya. Bhookhe na naheeN ham rahje, NaNge na naheeN ham kahje. RoNde na naheeN ham hasde
    UjaRe na naheeN ham vasde. Paapi na sudharmi na, Paap pun ki raah na jaanaaN. Bulhe Shah jo hari chit laage,
    Hindu turak doojan tiyaage.

    Neither Hindu nor Muslim, Sacrificing pride, let us sit together. Neither Sunni nor Shia, Let us walk the road of peace.
    We are neither hungry nor replete, Neither naked nor covered up. Neither weeping nor laughing, Neither ruined nor settled, We are not sinners or pure and virtuous, What is sin and what is virtue, this I do not know. Says Bulhe Shah, one who attaches his self with the lord.
    Gives up both hindu and muslim.

    UNSPOKEN

    You started out as friends
    Making fun of almost everything
    Talk about a lot of things
    Anything you could ever think of

    You share the same thoughts
    Agrees on almost anything
    You exchanged views and opinions
    Makes you even closer than before

    Then suddenly you felt
    Something's changing deep inside
    The love you used to have for a friend
    Now slowly blossoms to something else

    Within yourself you know for sure
    The feeling you have is getting strong
    But you are afraid to let him know
    And you don't want to let it show

    You treasure the friendship
    And the special relationship
    More than anything else
    Don't want it broken nor scarred

    So you keep it inside you
    For you are not sure
    You'd rather die inside
    Than see him leave your side

    It's by Baba Bulleh Shah. It is in Punjabi and about maladies that we face in this day and age.

    怒髮衝冠,憑欄處,瀟瀟雨歇。
    抬望眼,仰天長嘯,壯懷激烈。
    三十功名塵與土,八千里路雲和月。
    莫等閒白了少年頭,空悲切。
    靖康恥,猶未雪;
    臣子恨,何時滅?
    駕長車踏破賀蘭山缺!
    壯志飢餐胡虜肉,笑談渴飲匈奴血。
    待從頭收拾舊山河,朝天闕。

    My wrath bristles through my helmet, the rain stops as I stand by the rail;
    I look up towards the sky and let loose a passionate roar.
    At the age of thirty, my deeds are nothing but dust, my journey has taken me over eight thousand li
    So do not sit by idly, for young men will grow old in regret.
    The humiliation of Jiangkang still lingers,
    When will the pain of the Emperor's subjects ever end?
    Let us ride our chariots through the Helan Pass,
    There we shall feast on barbarian flesh and drink the blood of the Xiongnu
    Let us begin anew to recover our old empire, before paying tribute to the Emperor.
