The rash tone of a mare to morph to a butterfly" is the first poetry collection that Kamran Mirhazar publishes in Norwegian exile. Poetry that takes us on an exceptional language travel: herein Afghan literature hypnotizes the readers in Farsi language.
"Steadily on the water at the horizon
a river atwain, an Amu atwain
rises, someone or a talism on sand
fluid ways on the hillside of words
every moment they pass, they arrive for an arrangement or, they never arrive
a wet inkwell,
stirred into glass and
mirrored to imbue the self,
an exhalation, on the rim of a glass tea, kept in suspense
in the sense of five senses, spread dimensions
bends and returns in an excitation, lips closed stiff
, and on one of its ways carrying its cancer.
an exhalation steamed up a glass of tea;
some views lost in threads, sorrows cut on edges
one of our shreds has already left for Tibet,
the rash tone of a mare to morph to a butterfly."
