Several Poems by Fatemeh Babaei

Tea Lights, Candles, Light, Tea Candles
1 Parents

Lighting candles they are
Burning in the flames of love
Giving fire to the newborn light
Asking it to become flaring in its life

Embracing willingly, it ignites
Not knowing this way would be hard
But with the presence of candles in its side
It knows that this would be light.

2 Far Side of the Moon

I’m like the Moon to your Sun
Rotating on the axis, while
Orbiting the Earth my bond,
Knowing you are the only one,
Who can see my both sides,
Resting with my pilgrimage on
Whilst all can see the near side
Showing you my far side
The side which is far from others,
But the nearest to you, God!

3 Magpies

Two little magpie made a nest
In front of my window’s rest
With the blues in their wings
Made me believe in world peace.

4 Songbird

Songbird, O Songbird on the tree!
Would you see me singing for free?
For what is just left for me is singing,
Need you to hear what I’ve been feeling
Imprisoned in home and being told
Stay in home, O stay in home!

5 Grandma

For the last time, before she left me
She braided my hair, my Grandma I mean,
Softened my hair with the aged hands of hers
Braided in a way that I thought I was a Queen
She gave me the light, confidence, and spirit
That I’ll be clung to, for as long as I live.

6 Butterfly

I wish I could be a butterfly
One day in the morning of July

I wish I could fly over his ears
To be able to hear what he hears

I wish I did not have to die
Just after one day of fly

I wish I did not want to
Be reborn from the first time.

7 Kissing Clouds

Two clouds, wandering in the sky
Then there is lightning which makes them cry
Out of fear, they jump into eachother’s hand
Being face to face there is no other chance,
But to kiss so gently as one may figure
That they were lovers before in heaven
They both kiss one another’s lips
That you can’t tell which one is which.
