مرگ پایان کبوتر نیست

This*, along with good vibes and prayers, for HiK:


و نترسيم از مرگ
مرگ پايان كبوتر نيست
مرگ وارونه يك زنجره نيست
مرگ در ذهن اقاقي جاري است
مرگ در آب و هواي خوش انديشه نشيمن دارد
مرگ در ذات شب دهكده از صبح سخن مي گويد
مرگ با خوشه انگور مي آيد به دهان
مرگ در حنجره سرخ – گلو مي خواند
مرگ مسئول قشنگي پر شاپرك است
مرگ گاهي ريحان مي چيند
مرگ گاهي ودكا مي نوشد
گاه در سايه نشسته است به ما مي نگرد
و همه مي دانيم
ريه هاي لذت ، پر اكسيژن مرگ است

بر گرفته از شعر بلند “صدای پای آب” نوشته سهراب سپهری-


(I was going through some hard times myself and somebody text-ed this line from the poem to me and it reminded me of when I was devouring Sepehri’s poetry under other circumstances, and it made me wonder how differently and how much more poignantly it all sank in this time around…)

  1. Thank you very much. I will do my best to read it (I am functionally illiterate in dari – but taking classes!). I really appreciate you thinking of me though.

  2. Of course.

    But on the Dari illiteracy thing, really? I would have never thought so…
