This Week's Poem l Ghazal V

The drop dies in the river 
of its joy
pain goes so far it cures itself 

in the spring after the heavy rain the cloud 
that was nothing but tears 

in the spring the mirror turns green 
holding a miracle 
Change the shining wind 

the rose led us to our eyes 

let whatever is be open

From Selected Translations, translated by W.S. Merwin and Aijaz Ahmad, published by Copper Canyon Press, 2013
