In this darkness

drakness

In this darkness

I am thinking about a bright lamb

To come and graze the grass of my fatigue

In this darkness

I can see the extension of my arms

In the rain

Which moistened the primeval prayers of man

In this darkness

I opened the door to ancient meadows

To golden colors that we watched on the walls of myths

In this darkness

I saw roots

To the new bush of death I interpreted the water

To the new bush of death I interpreted the water

sunset

من در اين تاريكي

فكر يك بره روشن هستم

كه بيايد علف خستگي‌ام را بچرد.

من در اين تاريكي

امتداد تر بازوهايم را

زير باراني مي‌بينم

كه دعاهاي نخستين بشر را تر كرد.

من در اين تاريكي

درگشودم به چمن‌هاي قديم،

به طلايي‌هايي، كه به ديوار اساطير تماشا كرديم.

من در اين تاريكي

ريشه‌ها را ديدم

و براي بته نورس مرگ، آب را معني كردم.

و براي بته نورس مرگ، آب را معني كردم
