Still, then, nothing is lost.

When the air gets colder and the snow falls.

All the ash will also fall down, and eventually

the sun will start taking its hold on life.
And the snow starts melting,

trees and vegetation reappear
And the world starts again like a
White Lotus

Opening and giving its fragrance. Fresh.
A NEW ERA HAS BEGUN!!!

A poem from February 2010 written when the Norooz (Islamic calendar New Year) celebrations and Bahman 22nd were approaching, and we all were filled with hope and anticipation for better times in Iran.
