Inclination by hamid reza rahimi
One's throat must be like a garden
And one's eyes like windows
through which love passes;
And one's stature
Must be like a tree
that rises out of rocks;
And poetry must be like a singing bird,
Perching on the highest branch of a tree,
Breaking the heavy silence of the world.
(C) Hamid Reza Rahimi
If the poet's throat is like a garden, what is your throat like? Write a poem that describes your body in term of nature's images.
What is poetry to you? Journal your thoughts.
What is the silence that needs to be broken? Journal your thoughts or write a poem about that particular silence.
