Ah, human being!
You may knock on a door which is locked.
Do you think your boat is a key to a lock?
Do you think every door has a key hole?
Your knees might touch only a sea stone.
Don't be jealous of a sea gull above the highest rock!
If only you were haunted to be a sea gull on a sea shore!
If only you were a free bird, you wouldn't cry in the world's fog.
Don't be jealous of a sea gull in its white clothes!
No sea ever steals its hope.
Ah, human being!
Your footsteps might be on a short slope.
Don't be jealous of a sea gull whose wings are long.

I was born in Yerevan, Armenia, 1963. After graduating the university I published some of my earlypoems in the local anthology called ''Garun'' translated into English ''Spring''. My later works were published in different international anthologies and online magazines. I authored paperback books entitled My Intoxicated Ink, The Queen Of Metaphors and e-books entitled My Wandering Muse, My Lyrical Tongue and The Phantom's Dolphin. My books are in English and available on Amazon and Lulu.
