poems by Eduard Harents

বাংলা English
Translated by : Herminée Arshakyan


Like fever,
the moon angle is complex
and bright…

The night is a river
blindly entwined from the nuance of the star…

The rose-braid sky is fractioning –
hung on the plaits,
like shudder
of God output from the lip…

Exquisite catatonia – with seven birds…

The times are the pollination of your bird
in my flower’s dream…

You haven’t come
into my heart again
as you have locked it with the letter of your name…

The tear is the door
under the angle of my bird…

I am inside of you,
and you’re not from you…


The day is wet like a door,
by which
from me I enter into you –
my back turned against the noise,
as if when leaving the church.

The bowls of hope,- drunk by me –
stumble behind my flower,
and mote by mote
my bright back bows down
on the impersonal suffixes of your threshold…

And you, suddenly…
not looking, you see me,
that I collapse on you
and you have no which were
to surround my back…

Your arms have remained in the church –
to pray
with the subjunctive of hugging me…
