Everything appeared suddenly.
Daylight suddenly touched the earth.
The sky appeared suddenly.
Blue suddenly.
Everything appeared suddenly.
Smoke rose from the soil;
Shoots, buds appeared suddenly.

Everything appeared suddenly.
Girls suddenly, boys suddenly.
Landscape, roads, cats, humans…
Love suddenly.
Joy suddenly.

Orhan Veli (1914-1950). Birdenbire. Translated from the Turkish.
