Sevan Haneshian-Bedourian - FABLE

Pages fabricated from the sad-sweet
nights of the soul --
who can read the mislaid words
of whole pages?

There was a shrouded sky
on the double gazed globe,
a mystifying mystery
tethering their souls together…
And they sang the song
of the centuries silently,
and silently departed…

Like stormy waves, heart’s blood
crashed against pulsating essence
and calmed down in silence…

They carved regards
in the parchment of their souls,
heartbeats hollered
and ceased in silence…

The soul’s sacred flower
froze beneath life’s iceberg…
But, from the silent
echoes of the pages
burst forth the stormy sky
and poured down buckets
on their chilled hearts.

Sevan Haneshian-Bedourian
Translated by Tatul Sonentz
