    His poems are simply fantastic , they excavate diverse issues of human nature, social ills, romance, emotions, frustrations, hope and what not. They are incredibly profound and enlightening and the discourse is no doubt impressive and astoundingly persuasive, his rhetoric is magically effective , he is well acquainted with literary figures and is able to employ them to the best of infuence.

    My most favorite poems are: Solitude, and Jamila Jolie. The juxtaposition of these two poems shows how the poet intelligently scrutinizes human spiritual and material desires that are part of our lives.

  • Mozhgan Zaiim (10/9/2015 1:33:00 AM)

    This poet has delved deep into the significant elements of life time and being in most revealing manner with an unparalleled style of employing stunning literary figures.He has delineated the whole range of human emotions, ideas, concerns and issues most impressively. I really enjoy reading his poems and get huge inspirations and insights.

  • Dr Tony Richards (10/8/2015 8:55:00 PM)

    Powerful, verbally resonant, richly evocative, beautifully crafted poems - deserving of a wide audience. As an Oxford University-trained literary analyst and university lecturer, I am mightily impressed and hope to see more from this clearly talented poet.

  • Svetlana Pesina (8/20/2015 5:20:00 PM)

    Dear reviewer is obviously got used to the “right” lyrics written by happy, uncritical self- and everybody-satisfied poet. Using plain comprehensible for everybody vocabulary, the latter would picture harmonious hearty relations between well-fed contented and joyful inhabitants of the rest non-English speaking world full of virtue.
    And if the respected critic knows great names “for what they are” he wouldn’t have missed Schopenhauer’s sorrowful observation that talented people hardly ever “win acceptance” in their lives.

  • Peter Benson (7/24/2015 3:36:00 AM)

    In some of his poems, he sounds like a person who fails to adapt, can't win acceptance, and therefore throws a tantrum blaming everyone else and the world for his own failure. He sounds condescending in his views. Some mythical names he refers to in the poems are not correct for what they are; this shows his inadequate knowledge of those figures. His effort to throw in less frequently used words to be linguistically impressive makes his poems lack sincerity.

Best Poem of Ali Rahimi

Return Of The Salad Days

What happened to your salad days?
We look back at our lives,
We live in the past,
We look at the mirror,
Our faces the mysterious museum of last encounters,
We go down the memory road,
The path of desires, hearts and minds,
Of shames, remorse, betrayal and guilt,
Of laughters, love, songs and cries,
Of rawness, and spiciness,
We suppress the shame, we shall survive,
Days of hot kisses, magnetic hugs, devilish touches,
Of beloved’s stories, secrets and scandals,
We want to reminisce on the importance of growing up,
To indulge in the joyful...

Intellectual Wings

He wrote a treatise
On my intellectual shortcomings
I was in a miasma
Of despair and agony
Tried to fluff
My intellectual wings
But was confined
By the burdens of
My insular parochial mind
