The Story - Poem by Ahmet Yalcinkaya

time was yellow at that day
like a leaf
and the woman gave birth to betrayal
pure of mother-of-pearl so shown
seven harvesting of grapes have been passed
with cries and shrieks
while seven periods had been overthrown

time was walking lame at that day
although it is said to be bloody red
the snake was born at once
waters have withdrawn slowly / lacking fell down
that day
northwestwinds have choked a flame
gracefully in an ambush
and the mill stopped, got down
stopped as if waiting for bunches
of fame,
for dawn
and stopped the mill
which did not sleep for seven days
