POEM OF KAREZ / The last karez digger in Turpan

hosicimlikarizthe last kariz digger

life at the zero point, centre of the universe

water on the burning water, blood inside capillary

kariz is labour, track of civilization, heart of uyghur

my source is god mountain, my horizon is turfan

the last kariz: ancestor tracks

thousands of flowers bloom in the cem ceremony- lovers

almond eyed badegül, honey leaks from words, sorrow is bairam

eye of my heart bled, I cried inside and melted gram by gram

why we need captivity, I am free; each chain is a broken arm.

dursun ozden

2005 – turphan / chine
