The Heart Whisperer
About the Book
About the Author
I was born in Shiraz, Iran ~ the land of roses, poets and Shiraz wine. So, I was sentenced to be a poet for the rest of my life. As I grew up, I met my true teacher, my Mother. She was the same Mother who sang poetry to put me to sleep and who later on taught me to create poetry, music, calligraphy and painting. From then on, I wanted to be a poet, a musician, a calligrapher and a painter, and everything else I could put my heart into. She taught me that I could do anything if I wanted it badly enough. When I was old enough to hold a Persian instrument called 'tar,' she taught me how to play it. I later became an accomplished tar player. And when I got older yet, she taught me painting. I became a photographer as a result. I woke up at almost 30 years of age to realize the seed of poetry she had planted in me. And writing heartfelt poetry became a part of my everyday existence.
Each poem in my books is an image of a living moment in my life. Life as you live it has infinite phrases, poetry, music, colors, songs, sadnesses, happinesses, births and deaths. And a book of life has infinite chapters and a complete universe of feelings. I can only share a few winks at a time. So enjoy these books.
I have written many more poems than even surprises me. It is coming to me that the reason I am alive today is to share what I can offer. And that is, in fact, the very reason for any human being to be alive: to spread enduring love and care and to join for the safety of humanity, so that we can stand together as beacons of love. I am humbled to live among you, my dear ones. In oneness, we become one family of mankind. We can heal and be healed. We can sing, dance and be merry in any language. We need to be the eyes for those who are unable to see. We need to be the voices of people everywhere. This is our destiny. I live to see this.
