Umid Ali writes


You can dissect colours with your eyes - 
If you attire fire to your fetterless eyes - 
The world moves to your spirit which you realized, 
It saturates your word of truth as a ray.  
Your heartbeats break the night, 
Dawning will shine from your awareness. 
The truth which combined in your soul
Gives the signal: 
“I am sick for my homeland!”

--tr. Asror Allayarov, from "The Gate Opened by angels"

  1. Shavkat Rahmon was a noted Uzbek poet who was born in Osh, Kyrgyzstan, in 1950 and died in 1996. He was symbolic of the cultural shift away from the country's largest city Tashkent to Osh, the second largest but oldest (at least 3000 years old).
