Four Short Poems

By Maziar Karim

Posted on


I came
With thousand colorful dreams And the world
drunk them all Year after year
it dropped like a rain Drop by drop by drop

And I know tomorrow
even These few black crows Will fly away
From my snowy roof


Gliding from the elevator gushing on the street blowing with the taxi
Crossing the highway by the rain bow Saying hello to the old house
And entering my room It’s been years since human flew here


You plant your feet in the ground with fingers staring at clouds
you surrender your leaves to the wind and know that death
is not an exotic event


is better than darkness
I fear the silence of lanterns waiting for sunset
