Pause

Reversible

Interior

By the stream

Insomniac

In the middle of this phrase …

Tomb of the poet

The tomb of Amir Khusru

Brotherhood

A song out of tune

The face and the wind

To talk

Dawn

Here

Certainty

Duration

Counterparts

 Last dawn

Coming and going

Village

Daybreak

Concert in the garden

The daily fire

Between what I see and what I say

Wind, water, stone

This side

Fire by friction

A tree within

January first

Before the beginning

As one listens to the rain

Night, day , night

Motion

Proem

Basho an

Between going and staying

Little variation

Odd or even

Black and white stone

Across

The bridge

Letter of testimony

Oracle

With eyes closed

Peak and gravity

Touch

A where without a who

World in the shape of a cloud of dust

 


 

 A CLOUD OF DUST

For Jose’ Emilio Pacheco

I open the window

That looks out

On nowhere

The window

That looks in

The wind

Raises

Sudden          weightless

Towers of whirling dust

They are

Higher than this house

They could fit

On this page

They fall and side

Before they can say

Anything

 

کلمات به هیاّت ابری از غبار

می گشایم پنجره را

که باز می شود به ناکجا

پنجره را

که ره می برد به درون

برج های گرد باد

ناگهانی و بی وزن

فراز می آیند

آنها

بلند تر از این خانه اند

در این صفحه می گنجند

افتان و خیزان

می خواهند چیزی بگویند
