A Saturday Woman Poet- Farrideh Hassanzadeh

THE FORGOTTEN UMBRELLA.

Upon the sound of rain
she took a pad of paper, a pen
and a few words about a youngness,
a loneliness
and a next day; then rushed out.

Her heart
just as an umbrella
left on the corner
and was forgotten.’

-by  Farrideh Hassanzadeh
