My poet
Is a
Diaspora of

Scattered souls
Yearning with Dardedel of melodical Ghazels
Reinventing a cut-down realm of longings

Among the Persian Pleiades
Luminous than the Sun
Enchanting the maidens' unaided-eyes

My poet
Is a
Diaspora of

A home
remembered
by all Diasporas

Because I
will not
forget
Pack my poet's dreams
Parvin, a scientist with a poet's heart.
