    "It Has Not Rained Light" (a Poem By Hafiz)

      It has not rained light for many days,  The wells in most eyes look Drought-stricken.    Thus friends are not easy to find In this barren Place.   Where most everyone has become ill  From guarding  Nothing.    On this...

    The Secret (poetry By Hafez [better Translation])

     I need a drink, wine maiden, that cup with grape stain lined, for love that once seemed pleasing has burdened down my mind. Smell how the Western Wind shares her musk through tavern door; now feel our pumping hearts beat fast, watch our fears unwind. Why...

    I prefer physical books, so I can feel the paper in my hand and hear that flick when I turn the page. Besides, reading digital books strains my eyes.
