Sanober  Khan
“Tomorrow came
with the illusion of today
even more fleeting than yesterday

it came
like it always comes

and went
like it’s always gone

like a favorite song
in its final seconds

Tomorrow came and left
leaving nothing
but a familiar
sense of loss behind.”
Sanober Khan, A touch, a tear, a tempest

“It is so simple, yet so hard for some people to do. If you want someone out of your life then you and only “you” must tell him or her to leave. This can only be done by you. Otherwise, your silence shouts, “I am undecided.” When other people get involved it sends mixed signals. If only more people would be so bold, hearts would not linger so long.”
Shannon L. Alder

Angie karan

Kamand Kojouri

Sanober  Khan
with me
the lushness
of a lingering sleep...
and last night’s

“The pull of lingering dreams,
the strong, bitter taste
of morning coffee,
the ticking clock,
and horn of awaiting bus
form a powerful combination
to kick-start the day”

Ana Claudia Antunes
“Life is hard but it never loses its grace. If you aren't hard enough you cannot live but if you're not tender you don't deserve to be alive.”
Ana Claudia Antunes, The Tao of Physical and Spiritual
