A letter to sister


A letter to sister

I lay in Iran
My body is whipped by the winds and the dunes
I am alone
Thirsty
My lips dry
I am old
I am old
I am old
I recall history meeting myths
I was in between
Zoroaster’s sperm is in me
Supposed to be born millennium after millennium
I have sisters
I have many sisters scattered in168 countries
Round the world
In continents
My largest sister is in Canada
We have sisterly convent
Ramsar
We are estranged
I am dying
Thirsty
Lonely
In the wind
I’m lonely
Under dunes
Oh sister
Queen Maud Gulf
Where are you?

Your sister,
Hamun

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
