“Avalanche, Dew” is a suggestion to include the poetic body instead of the pure will of the mind: Here, while dew is an element that spreads to the whole, but is fleeting and does not weigh down, like the effect of poetry, the avalanche is a 'common mind' that has become so gigantic that it crushes the body under it. The avalanche [Çığ] and dew [Çiy] metaphors refer to an internal composition of the mind and body.

There is also a physical play between the words Çiy for dew and Çığ for avalanche.



When our thinking is concentrated solely in our minds, the weight of the mind becomes an avalanche-like burden on our bodies which inactivates its intelligence. It is a calling for critical thinking in ways in which we embody our intelligence in a holistic and poetic mode.
