HEED THE NATURE'S SONG

My creation
credits : 1. rain come down, 2. ., 3. cuppies, 4. Le Château de ma mère 




My soul flows towards the new direction of objects.
My soul is young.
My soul sometimes coughs from joy.
My soul is idle: It counts raindrops, the holes in bricks.
My soul is sometimes true as a rock on the road.

Sohrab Sepehri




I don't remember how old I was when I first read a poem of Sohrab. Nine maybe ten. I do remember the feeling though. 
Since then at different ages, in different moods every time I read him something new happens. Like I am having a new perception of his world. In a very different depth. Like this is my first time I am reading those words; feeling those words. And each time, it amazes me. Each time I feel like... okay how much deeper I can go. And there is never an answer for it.
