Dagestan. Aul Gamsutl
As in that joke - there are two planets. One wow so blue, perky, and the other kind of sickly.
Zdorovenkaya says: - Hi, scone. Something does not look good
Ta: - Yes, I am sick
- What are you sick of?
- Oh, I had it - it's nothing, it will soon pass.
Yes, in full accordance with the promise inscribed on King Solomon's ring - everything passes
People are especially fleeting.
That was on the mountain aul
And there is no him
There was a kid - and there is no kid
And a few years ago one resident lived in the village of Gamsutl all the time, but the mountains took him away - no one lives in the village.
Abandoned villages in Dagestan are not one and not two
And mostly they are high, where there are few roads, and where to climb on foot
Previously, it was built for security reasons - for life on the plain is abundant, but dangerous. Everybody before, you know, wandered
And as life settled down, it became so unnecessary to climb so high - that’s why the auls went
Somewhere remained nomads for pasture
And somewhere and they are left - only stones.
Gamsutl was abandoned not too long ago - but nothing in the mountains is reliable. Neither ice nor rock
When mountain homes are left unattended, the roof quickly grows thin, and frequent rains complete the work.
The houses, in which the frames and the shoals were still preserved in some places, and in some places the furniture remained simple, had time to decay to the state of submission of their inevitable fate.
Everything will pass - and sadness and joy
And people with their cities - will also pass
Faster than we all think
Do not believe - ask the stones.
