Flute Player – Farzaneh Khojandi

*The Flautist by Dasha Riley

Where is the real bazaar?

I want to buy an eyeful of kindness.
I want to dress my soul in hyperbole.
There’s a merchant who brings me
a whole spectrum of leaping colour
from the city of desires.
But here at the bazaar at Khojand,
faces are sour, talk is hot
and I long for the cool sweets of Tabriz.
Where is the real bazaar?
The flute-player tells me:
come with your ears used to insults,
and listen to the light recite a prayer to the dark.
Open your eyes used to pale shame
and see the beauty of Truth.
Where is the real bazaar?
The flute-player is there
calling my heart towards his hat
full of old change, but not a single pearl,
and since I am the jewel in the teardrop
I must go.


Thank you all  for spending a few moments of your precious time viewing my posts!!!

      • Lol!!!!!

        A kangaroo kept getting out of his enclosure at the zoo at night.

        Knowing that he could hop really high, the zoo officials decided to put up a ten-foot fence.

        However, they were amazed to find the kangaroo was out again the next morning, just roaming around the zoo.

        So they put up a twenty-foot fence instead.

        Again the next morning, they were amazed to find the kangaroo had still go out.

        So they started to put up a forty foot high fence.

        As the animals in the zoo watch this, a camel in the next enclosure asked the kangaroo, “How high do you think they’ll go?”

        The kangaroo replied, “About a thousand feet, unless somebody starts locking the gate at night!”

        Sweet dreams!!!
