~*~ Window ~*~

One window is sufficient
One window for beholding
One window for hearing
One window
resembling a well's ring
reaching the earth at the finiteness of its heart
and opening towards the expanse of this repetitive blue kindness
one window filing the small hands of loneliness
with nocturnal benevolence
of the fragrance of wondrous stars
and thereof
one can summon the sun
to the alienation of geraniums

...One window will suffice me

~ Forugh Farrokhzad ~
