Iran! Persia!the only thing I remember as a child was being told that there are 32 ways to describe a SMILE in the Persian language.
I was to fall in love with Iran once again! Hafez entered my life as did Shanameh and Makhmalbouf as did others.
I am grateful for this love that I felt; that fire was extinguished in KL two years ago but the embers burn on, at times burning a hole in my heart and at other times shining a light on the darkened moments that I lived through in Europe
I am grateful for Iran.
Forgive me for not returning your lvoe with all the fire it deserved.
You have disappeared and I cant even look for you, in the depth of the veil of darkness imposed upon you by others, not only on you but also on your country, they have no moral authority and they have only violence and vengeance in their hearts.
you gave me Shamloo
A thousand laughing suns are in your eyes. A thousand crying stars in mine.
