The Odor of Happiness | Makhliyokhon Umirzakova | Poem

Makhliyokhon Umirzakova

Light leaks from the embrace of mountains,

Sensitive trees wake up.

Empty baskets

Roll down the arbor.


In the early morning, my mother builds fire in tandoor,

And she bakes kindness in tandoor.

She fills the embrace of baskets,

Every morning appreciates it.


She sprays water over the drowsy courtyard,

And she wakens lazy soil.

As if it kisses on its forehead,

The dawn begins wakening the village. 


The golden braided Sun comes

On the fiery maned and swift-flying wing.

A sweet breath spreads out,

The odor of happiness comes from life.
