“It seems that the Jasmine is wiggling,
On the stillness of this desolate place.” —Ahmad Shamlou

It is as if the wind is blowing here,
Whether it is pleasant or nasty, I do not know.
Standing in the wind, soaked in color, decent and mannered.
Perhaps they have accepted an ever-blowing wind.
Perhaps this is the acceptance of death, the acceptance of stillness.
Apprehension brings desolation for me.
This lifeless nature, beautiful and decorous, in this endless suspension.
