POEMS by Farzaneh Haratyan

Updated: May 5



Pain, a sort of soreness,

A gnawing affliction, a relentless suffering,

An anguish, an agony, an ache that stings.

A toil that tortures, a throb that troubles.

Bitterly biting, sour, surly, sullen.


No way to flee from pain.

Permeating, pervading pain

Unavoidable, inevitable, inescapable!


A sure thing that is bound to befall,

Today or tomorrow, any day at all!

It walks with you side by side, breath by breath, arm in arm

Fated, ordained, destined, universal, global.

For you, for me, for all.



Spring splashes sensations, as they dance,

Radiating lights, in a trance.

Green trees around spread romance,

As winds from North to South prance.


Pinkish-purple hues catch the glance,

Barely seen in a fleeting chance.

If not paid attention as they advance,

Spring sky, oceanic blue, expands in expanse.


Lands on tones of green and yellow,

Pigments of rainbow, a colorful bellow

Lurking in a queue, soft and mellow,

Spring’s splash of colors, a beautiful tableau.





Navigate the mind, where is the gear?

Find the grains of vague thoughts and steer!

Full of crooked lines, the mind’s not clear.

Erase them all with no fear.

Beware, if the eraser is not fine,

It may leave an even uglier sign, a smear


Let the breeze blows in the mind’s sphere

Let past regrets pass, let them disappear,

Let positive thoughts cast, sincere,

Plant cherry trees in the mind, let them bloom, near.


Let pines, maples, pomegranates appear.

Enjoy the blissful scent, in the mind, my dear,

In the fertile soils of the mind, not in the barren lands, austere.
