This was a very disappointing read. I expected to give this 5 stars but here we are. Some of the poems are amazing but some are just random ramblings and pretty words mixed together that don't actually mean anything.

But I loved all the nature descriptions in this. I felt like I was in a forest while reading it. So sweet. Though some of them were very depressing.

“آدم اینجا تنهاست
و در این تنهایی
سایه ی نارونی تا ابدیت جاریست
به سراغ من اگر می آیید
نرم و آهسته بیایید
مبادا که ترک بردارد
چینی نازک تنهایی من”

“Sohrab Sepehri
این تن، بی شب و روز
پشت باغ سراشیب ارقام
مثل اسطوره می خفت

فکر من از شکاف تجرد به او دست می زد
هوش من پشت چشمان او آب می شد

روی پیشانی مطلق او
وقت از دست می رفت

پشت شمشاد ها کاغذ جمعه ها را
انس اندازه ها پاره می کرد

این حراج صداقت
مثل یک شاخه تمر هندی
در میان من و تلخی شنبه ها سایه می ریخت
یا شبیه هجومی لطیف،
قلعه ترس های مرا می گرفت

دست او مثل یک امتداد فراغت
در کنار تکالیف من محو می شد

واقعیت کجا تازه تر بود؟
من که مجذوب یک حجم بی درد بودم
گاه در سینی فقر خانه
میوه های فروزان الهام را دیده بودم
در نزول زبان، خوشه های تکلم صدادارتر بود
در فساد گل و گوشت
نبض احساس من تند می شد
از پریشانی اطلسی ها
روی وجدان من جذبه می ریخت
شبنم ابتکار حیات
روی خاشاک برق می زد

یک نفر باید از این حضور شکیبا
با سفر های تدریجی باغ چیزی بگوید
یک نفر باید این حجم کم را بفهمد
دست او را برای تپش های اطراف معنی کند
قطره ای وقت
روی این صورت بی مخاطب بپاشد

یک نفر باید این نقطه محض را
در مدار شعور عناصر بگرداند
یک نفر باید از پشت درهای روشن بیاید
گوش کن یک نفر می دود روی پلک حوادث
کودکی رو به این سمت می آید...
