Happy Nowrūz 2012 and Spring Equinox (Ostara) to everyone around the world.


My Nowrūz in Exile

I stitch
my skirt
to the spring
of the hostess city,
my skin to the
of springs past
in my city of birth,
and I celebrate
the new year’s feast,
Nowrūz, on Cyberspace!

Who knew,
cutting off the
umbilical cord to
Motherland that was
wrapped around my neck,
choking me, that one day
would be my rented
sugar Nanny,
my isolation
in exile!
