Flowers from Iran, England and Tenerife

بیچاره بلبل

خون دررگهایش گداخته فلزی را میماند که درمداری بسته جریانی تکراری را سیرمیکرد. این گردش معلول ضربانی بود که درعینِ حیات بخشی بانی تلاقی سرخ رودِ متلاطم با سلولهای جدارمسیرش بود. برخوردی که اثری پررنگ چون کهنه زخمی ملتهب ازحضورش بر جای میگذاشت. افکارش در جستجوی معشوق دائمأ در تکاپو بود وکمترشتابی برای پایان دادن به شب نشینی با یاد اوازخود نشان میداد. قدرت سلطه جوی خواستن یار گاه رخصت نفس کشیدن را نیزازاوسلب میکرد. این بی مهری تا آنجا ادامه می یافت که جسم ملول وآزرده اش به خونخواهی ریه هایش را با گسترشی ناگهانی واداربه بلعیدن نفسی عمیق میکرد تا سیلی ازاکسیژن به کوره داغ رگهایش فرو ریزد. باری اشتیاق جسم به بقا درهمین مرحله متوقف و نگهبانی از حیات، نیمه کاره رها میشد. گویا اوحس تعلق به زندگی را درقمارنگاه باخته بود.

Nazy jaan: Thanks for sending me the link. At the risk of it being considered as “taarof tekeh paareh kardan” I would like to say that I like your work, too (very much actually).

Tahirih jaan: Thanks for your comment. If you like image no 19 that much, you can certainly have an electronic copy. Just give me an email address to send it to. I can be contacted on sangrezeh@yahoo.co.uk


I love # 19th.

I wish that I could frame it and look at it all the time.There is something so mystical about it.How can I get a copy of it?

Dear Shahireh:

Thank you very much and I loved your generous answer. Of course I look at all your work with admiration and enjoy it as a viewer. However, I use your photographs in a humble weblog I have (always, always giving due credit to you and the source), and in there, I would like to use images associated with Iran. Take a look sometime: //nazykaviani.blogspot.com/

Thank you again.

Nazi jaan I understand and admire your desire to know, but not having all the pieces of the puzzle together isn’t bad either. It allows your mind to wonder to the land of “could be”, doesn’t it?

Show me my flowers, please...

As usual, beautifully done Shahireh Khanom, taking us to a visual feast of colors, textures, and heartfully selected subjects. I would just like to ask that there be some explanation about the location of each of the photographs. I know these pictures are entitled : "Flowers from Iran, England and Tenerife," but which one is which? For some very silly and nostalgic reason, I want to know which of these flowers are growing in the dirt of the land I just can't get out of my mind these days, Iran. Thank you.
