Hacihabiboglu being almost a recluse in all of his creative endeavours including music, painting, prose and poetry, Drowned in Light is his first poem to be published.


Pleats of light
draped above the Princes’ Islands
as if to hide
the bodies of princes, concubines, fishermen drown’d.

The sky, the sea, the heart
seemingly alight
a thousand candles,
strands of hair
touching the face of the sea
painting it amber.
