Other Forms Of Understandings , vis à vis with Farzané Nouri

In the haze of summer’s languid eve,
Where sultry air does shimmer and deceive,
Upon a window sill, a dance unfolds,
Flickering lights, like stories yet untold.

Those flickering lights, a transient ballet,
In hues of gold and amber, they would sway,
As fireflies, with secrets they would keep,
Illuminate the darkness, where dreams sleep.

The whispers of the night caress the air,
As cigarettes burn low, their embers flare,
Those lights, like verses strewn across the sky,
Paint tales of love and loss, of truth and lie.

Through cracked glass, a world of sorrows seen,
The naked truth, unfiltered and unclean,
But in each flicker, hope begins to rise,
A phoenix from the ashes, soaring skies.

For you know well the human plight,
The struggle, pain, the fight for love’s respite,
Yet still, you find beauty in life’s decay,
And on that window sill, it’s on display.
