A Jar - Poem by Muesser Yeniay

a well growing in width
begging water from its depth
winter kidnapping spring
with horses time stumbling
'you are a son' says
a bee to its honey

I burned down all my house
opened a window to balcony
soot of the hours that on my face
testimony of witnesses-the laments

wrap up yesterday to dreams
I left ajar my colour
