Armenian haikus

Discovered some stuff from 2011. Greetings to my Armenian friends!


*
whoosh plane in air gap
close your eyes and think
of armenia


*
hey armenia
i see your rocky shores
island on dry land


*
abovyan street in
every rome you ever go
virgil of the west


*
comfortable night
young moon upside down in sky
five stars on bottle


*
soviet nightmare
porsches circling yerevan
the germans are here


*
cornucopia
of internal combustion
purgatorio


*
island on dry land
coconuts and suffering
late to ark again


*
hefty hotel bill
empty street on rainy night
reminds me of home


*
compass made of gold
houses high in babylon
noa learns to swim


*
trout in lake sevan
noa’s ark is full of tourists
can you feed them all


*
snow on ararat
fourth thursday of november
do you eat turkey


*
yassir arafat
did you ever know how close
is your name to sky


*
the tap is dribbling
soviet appartment block
fills with lake sevan


*
slowly up the road
uaz gaz lada and paz
heaven awaits you


*
smiling redhead monk
tell me where is god these days
in your burning beard


*
dried fruit in market
big nation in small package
lasts long if you try


*
matenadaran
a book of 30 kilos
our words like wind


*
elegant zig zag
constellations I can’t name
beauty of your alphabeth


*
sandals lost in time
clapping early morning by
urartu highway


*
magnitude of love
mighty moves of mother earth
mountains standing still


*
on these nights you can
hear the ocean calling you
fish in lake sevan


*
how many stars from
the armenian sky did
you drink ararat


*
eyes have seen too much
belly full of memories
araratatouille


*
all roads lead to rome
but if you drive in circles
you are always there


*
mountains around you
learn to swim in tuff and rock
robinson for life
