Poem part 2: Calm River

by: Solmaz Rezaei
Part of the book: “For the Moses in Me”

My Merciful…
many a times you subsided the flood of my anxiety,
and you keep doing so,
and now this is me,
a calm river, babbling at your feet…
If I were not meant to love you then
what is this flood that rises according to your moon?
