Distance. - Poem by Wali Jamali

The sea-shore
was twenty steps away
from the door-step of my house.

Last night,
i found it one more step-away.

I sat upon the door,
and followed up the reason.

The sea-shore
was still linning-up
the previous point.

It was
my house which moved away.

    I wish to ask if you know of any site where I ask knowledgable persons for information concerning a poem for which I have been searching for 30 years. (Report) Reply
