Sea flower… 

Work of a talented artist,
A rare flower, a beautiful flower, a wonderful flower.
Doesn’t water wash away the color of the flower?
A flower that grows blue from the bottom of the sea.

It doesn’t live like any other flower,
Sea lovers day and night…
Seagulls always go with the flow.
If you love him…

Sea flower, you have so many secrets,
Did you hide the secret of the sea?
Because you are so beautiful?
What is hidden in your sheet?

I wrote you a song, I wrote you a poem.
The artists drew you from the heart.
Sometimes to test the patience of the sea,
Sorry, they broke your peace on purpose.

You are a protected miracle
Tell me where you got all this beauty from.
Oh flower of the sea, I sang to you.
No matter how much I sing, the verse never ends.

Munavvar Boltayeva


Dreaming on the boat of life.
Sometimes we swim to the right, sometimes to the left.
So that the rude waves do not meet,
Sometimes we break the period of silence.

How many childhoods passed on this ship,
How many dawns, how many days have set.
If anyone has not seen the early morning…
Some were woken up by the sun.

There is life and there is only walking.
There is no getting stuck in one place, there is no stopping for a moment.
Earth is also in motion, what about time?  He is in a hurry.
Bullet like chasing a person…

And the address is clear.  Green basil.
Juices flow in the stream there.
There are many trees with endless fruits.
Sayings, there is no rain or snow.

Even the crescent in the blue does not stop for a moment,
After all, he also has a certain way.
To hear from people,
At night, they appear in the sky one by one.

We are still sailing in the boat of life,
Don’t scare us, false mirage.
Let only the good be our companions,
Anyway, we are in a bad situation on this road…

Oh time…

The heart that stopped for peace,
Different thoughts took over him.
The sky runs through day and night,
And now what does he say when he is silent?
This unfaithful time goes fast…
Without looking back.
Something is ruining my heart,
Holding my heart in the hands of the past,
Oh time, stop for a moment,
Don’t go, I can achieve my dreams,
My loved ones grow older every day.
Oh time, let me hold hands with my loved ones,
Time is very valuable to me,
I use it sparingly every day.
Some don’t know the value of time…
Some waste time…
Today is an opportunity for all of us,
We have time, we have this opportunity,
If we spend time on a useful day,
We will win, this is our chance…
