Umid Ali writes


I propel the veils, 
And the window’s wings open. 
The rectangular wall and my strong determination 
Welcome the air entering the room. 
A sorrow expels – the old air. 
The top and the dawn flute: 
“The world is filled with freedom.” 
Melodies overrun my pure gullet. 

 --tr. Asror Allayarov from "The Gate Opened by Angels"
