    One of the Iranian scholars named her daughter of Molana (Rumi) . I also like to share a short poem that I wrote as a tribute to Emily Dickinson:
    I see you through your verses, when you stir alone.
    I found a way to acknowledge you,
    when your soul selects her own society
    the wind confirms you
    the trees, the earth, the tears
    and the people's awakening confirms you.
    why I am searching you, if you are everywhere? (Report) Reply

    Hope' is the thing with feathers—
    That perches in the soul—
    And sings the tune without the words—
    And never stops—at all— that's why I say- till there is sun shall not dew parish ....superb (Report) Reply

    Hope is much more than that
    A thing with feathers that flies
    When the going gets dismal and rough
    It becomes our guiding star of dark skies........ (Report) Reply

    The poetess composes a Quatorzain here -one of her favored metrical forms- because she combines each two consecutive lines to one. For example - And sings the tune without the words -
    And never stops - at all - A beautiful Iambic heptameter - Quatorzain - for the experienced reader. (Report) Reply
