Poem 3 by Enver Ercan

I had unraveled
under the spell of a garden
with stars overlooking its pool

she was bending over the water
a swan appeared

did the swan resemble the poppy
or was the poppy the swan
the question did not even occur to me

in that childish afternoon
when words retreated into silence
was kissing everything it passed.
