Best Poem of Raymond Uyok

The Weeping Genius

Short-sighted sages
Loveless lovers,
Days of sizzling sun,
Night of shimmering lights,
Deserts without oases,
Rivers without fishes;
Existence full of uncertainties,
Life full of threats,
Thunder without preceding lightning,
Dawns without preceding cockcrow,
Eyes full of tears
...

Epitaph

'twas life,
To strive,
And thrive,
As known,
Outgrown,
Renowned,
From womb,
To bloom,
This tomb.

[Hata Bildir]
