Manoochehre Atashi the famous Iranian poet has died taday. The reason for his death was cardiac arrest after kidney surgery in Tehran,Iran. He was 74 years old.
Poem is dream, but
to see, no need to sleep.
From room you go to balconey,
With your slippers on, but no response.
You arrive from the bridge in the backyard.
passing by the water fountain. and you
Open the door to an unknown guest,
who has not sent a message, but
you were expecting him.
He is here and you know he is
where he is suppose to be.You go back
with him, shoulder to shoulder.
He seats in the balconey and drinks
cups of tea, with basil and orange blossom.
He opens the mystery of world
In a cup as small as a word but
contains in it all oceans and thunder.
