Gypsies by Anwer Ghani
The Gypsy Girl
My mother is so expert in the seasonal souls and she told me that the autumn is a gypsy girl. I didn’t see autumn, but I am sure that my mother saw her because she described her face precisely. She told me that Autumn is flying between the trees’ branches as a small bird and leaving her veil weaving airily in our souls. Sometimes I feel that Autumn is a fairy and you may see her stormy tale swimming deeply in our dreams’ water.
A Gypsy Tent
I am not a hippie, but I seriously had thought to live in the forest without cooker or air-conditioner, just wood for the fire. I will drink the river water with birds and eat the green leaves with deer. I will sleep under a tent without walls or doors. I will leave all your walls and all my closed doors for you. I will take a gypsy tent because I wish to dream at the night widely and chant at morning loudly.
A Gypsy Wagon
My grandfather had a beautiful horse with a heart filled with compassion. He might have possessed a wagon. I don’t know and I didn’t ask about this, but I think if we had one, it will be closed as our souls. I am a farmer from the south and you know there is nothing here but dry sunset, so I decided to bring a gypsy wagon into my home to learn my children the waterish freedom.
