Umid Ali writes
He mixed in the air – completely,
And imbiled to land as the soil
His soul-world called “a life,”
Got into poems a lot of it.
His spirit such a purity - honest,
And glorious, mild as a spring
You can sanctify yourself,
If you cry only for himself.
The significance – time full of entertainment –
If life is revived into your conscience.
A spirit is in the sky and your body is in the earth…
If the soul floats in the air
--tr. Asror Allayarov, from "The Gate Opened by Angels"
