Poetry, photography

My friend Natalia, learned and always a gracious guide to Polish Culture, has another quatrain from Baba Taher in translation both Polish and English in addition to this older post. Baba Taher is one of our mystics now resting in Hamadan.

Natalia’s blog has many links that some of you might find interesting as well. I n particular for today, one to the celebrated Iranian photojournalist Kaveh Golestan. His collection of photography covering revolution, and war, and prostitution.

And while we are in the neighborhood, I should thank also another reader who was good enough recently to draw my attention to one of the greatest Hungarian poets of the century past, Attila József,

An E. Fischer translation of József’s poignant poem, the Dog.
