Nowadays Poem by Mehri Mehraban


in faked glory of a crystal bowl 
the goldfish forgets the sea!
In cages, alone birds pray and sing
'God! Bring A delicate roommate for me! '

unaware vase in boring moments
Expects lifeless flower's fading season!
In mansion, behind an elegant curtain
A window stands welcoming the light, in vain!

 I know a tree, so ignorant, it seems 
Isolated and Lone,  in a barren, hot desert 
It sells shade to tired passengers free
 and None of them admires its present!

measuring everything by analytic eyes
Love and business make no difference, indeed
We don't share bread, happiness and peace
Only, misery is permitted to come in!
