Poetry from Shamsiya Khudoynazarova Turumovna

Young Central Asian woman with short brown hair, reading glasses and a brown jacket over a floral blouse.
Shamsiya Khudoynazarova Turumnova

Passed four seasons with the dead leaves,
Which season we have expected other than this, 
Why haven’t we bloomed in any season? 
Why have all of them hated us, 
What bad evil have we done to them while, 
We were busy with ourselves and the world?…
