Excerpts From Persian Poetry

Poem By Yasmin Khan

Clocks ticking away time, minds lying in bed, filled with
confusion of loss, not able to understand why it happens.

Deepening depressions sucking them in, life filled with
sorrow, drowning in tears of sadness.

Nothing able to penetrate a mind dying in grief, a lone
and solitary journey each of us will eventually be making.

Reaching out, touching those who are going through this
difficult time, just BEing there for them.

You may be their only connection to the reality of their
lives for a while.

Give your heart, have patience and don't give up on them,
they will come to feel your support and love.

Appreciating the fact that someone actually felt love and
compassion for them in spite of the deep darkness they have
been going through.

A Blessing From God

Quietly whispering tunes in imagination,
letting them flow outward into snow-filled memories,
sliding across on a sled big enough to hold all six
of us sisters.


Leaves, branches, trees waving good-bye to me
and playing a beautiful symphony with the
gentle breeze.

Descriptive Poem

Tar sucking in warm rays of the sun.
Ivy crawling and clinging closely to a wire fence.
Brick buildings standing, feet apart, looking over the streets.
Flowers shooting out their beautiful colors to passers-by.
