This weekend, I ‘ve used a “mosaic like” composition with “istanbul tulips” .  Because Ayşe Tütüncü  released new album “Yedi yer, Yedi Gök”  .

A Conservation with Sappho

The moon is off, and then the stars
Half the night is gone
Time is passing by.

Love walked away, as she caressed herself
It was many and many year ago
The moon is off and then the stars
Half the night is gone.

The heavens above rested in peace.

Love is on, and then the stars
Time give us a break
Roses come of age

She walked away as she sang of herself
It was many and many year ago
Love is on, and then the stars
Time gives us a break.

The heavens above rested in peace.

a Mozaik song from “Çook alametler belirdi! “

original is in Turkish

Sappho İle Konuşma

Ay söndü sonra yıldızlar
Gece yarılandı
Zaman geçiyor

Aşk yürüdü okşayarak kendini
Yıllarca yıllarca önceydi
Ay söndü sonra yıldızlar
Gece yarılandı
Sessizlik içindeydi gökler

Aşk yandı sonra yıldızlar
Zaman aralandı
Güller açıyor

O yürüdü söyleyerek kendini
Yıllarca yıllarca önceydi
Aşk yandı sonralar yıldızlar
Zaman aralandı
Sessizlik içindeydi gökler

Mozaik, Çook Alametler Belirdi

I am supporting petition of Mozaik fans.  We want to listen “Mozaik”  again …

  1. I think you are thinking like sukrat, but I think you should cover the other side of the topic in the post too…
