    Beautiful !
    A thoughtful poem looking deeply into leaving or living !!
    Shafe’ie Kadkani, Iranian contemporary poet , has a poem written on a conversation between a passing breeze from a desert land and a thorn bush!
    The shrub asks the breeze where are you heading so hurriedly?!
    The breeze replies:
    ” To anywhere but this dusty desert! ” and wonders if the shrub desires to migrate from the desert!?
    The shrub:
    ” this is all a desirable dream but i am bounded by my roots to this land “

    I love the sound of 'legible in leaves'.
