As the moment unfolds

Kissed by NikNaz K

I have learned
to listen to an internal voice
that seeks to know
what this moment will bring forth for me.
I have not learned
to listen to the voice
that continuously beckons me, wanting to know
what gift I will bring to this moment.

Poem by Margot Bickel, translated from German to Farsi by Ahmad Shamlou. English translation by NikNaz Kahnamoui.
