Today we’re happy to share two exquisite poems written in Farsi and translated in English by their author, Soodabeh Saeidnia. Soodabeh immigrated to the US in 2014, and is now living in Kew Gardens, New York. Immigration was a trigger to her poetry and after that her poems have been published in different American magazines and literary journals. She writes both in English and Farsi, sometimes mixing the languages in the same poem. Find out more about her in the insightful interview “Wake Up and Write Something, or You Will Be Eaten Soon” on the Great Weather for Media web site. We hope you’ll fall in love with her poetry as we did.
