Your headnote is helpful here. I think that each of us may take something away with us after reading this very thought provoking haiku. So many people have gone before us - we need to honor their memory for without them we are mere visitors to strange shores. Congratulations on your 1st place win, Mohammad. Regards, Su

wow, this is DEEP and really good. So many hearts buried in the ground. Well, I just realized I have not only lost all my soupmail but I have no member area and I cannot post poetry anymore or reply to blogs. I sure hope they fix this mess. I hate not having a member area to go to!!!

Taha mentioned of this one to me. But the effect it leaves on the reader is far greater than when read out to you. I really loved it uncle. Thank you for commenting on Black Widow, your comments are always encouraging, dear uncle

Thought-provoking piece. The middle line links the other two and is probably the central message if I'm interpreting this correctly. Thank you for your kind comment. Karen

Thanks for your comments, Karen. You can't be more right about the central line. An enlightened comments such as yours gives great pleasure. I am grateful. -Mohammad

The buried hearts will leave mark... the risk for tasting love.. heavy meaning inside a haiku. Greatly written, Mohammad.

Who are the million hearts in the ground? Are they the departed? Fine haiku! Where can I get a copy of the rubai that you translated? Peace and Blessings Matthew Anish

I must have responded to your comments earlier but perhaps not the question you have posed about who the million hearts are. Matthew, it is the heart of the lovers that perished. Now reread the poem and see what does it stir in your poetic sensibility. -Mohammad

I like the wording of your Haiku. We don't think about these like this very often espcially when we are young. We are taught to respect the graves that are marked but there are many from generations past that are not marked. Keep writing. Sara

Seems like an Omar Khaym style of poem. It was quite well written and succinct. Yours Matthew Anish
