Butterflies! Do you know if I have a place in your fairy tale?
O your fairy tale is as short as a single day.
Happiness boasts with its vivid face until it turns into a grey shade.
Butterflies, you are happy as your day can still play.
Happiness is wide until it appears on a narrow path.
Happiness is one of you as it flies away.
It may land somewhere, where, where!
Homer was blind but philosophy lit his glance.
Butterflies! I am one of you as I can't measure my fairy tale's length.

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.
