I Asked A Monk

written by: Anahit Arustamyan



I asked a monk if I was a cloud of smoke.
The monk heard my cough caused by cold.
In the world there might be something wrong.
I can't guess the world's puzzle which is old.
I don't have a key to my century's lock.
In the world there might be somethig strong.
The strongest drug is a rainbow's talk.
A log was a willow in someone's song.
In the world there is something short.
Never think that my cough must be long!
There will be another monk.
There will be another cough or another song.

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.
