Poems by Mostafa Mofidi
My beloved one
I wish for you
As does growth for sun,
And body for soul,
And "being" for "becoming",
And heart for happiness.
I wish for you in the dark of loneliness,
And in every moment of detachment.
In florid smile of blossom,
And purity of dawn,
I look for you;
In fragrant breeze of spring,
I smell you.
My solitaire and hidden treasure,
My lost melody,
My wandering hope,
How brief life is
And how short our happiness!
In nightly silence,
I listen to the green music of the plants,
And silent symphony of life,
In the growth of young shoot.
I hear the secret of being,
In fluttering of bird's wings;
And absorb,to my body and soul,
All being,all life.

Mostafa Mofidi recommends:
poems by Hermann Hesse
Reason: The air of sympathy for human pains and and solitude
felt in it. I feei some kind of nostalgia for what, it is as if mankind
has lost nowadays: feeling of unity with nature and love for human being.
Recommendations for writers:
beauty,love sympathy in their broadest meaning.
