Title: Thoughts of a night-owl

Thoughts of a night-owl

It’s midnight. By my bed
a treasured radio plays Rachmaninov.
Beside it, as his gentle music soars,
lies a new exciting read
with scimitars and turbans -
Prophetic - on the cover.
A book redolent of Persia.
My mind , content and sleepy,
loves those words -
Rachmaninov - Persia.
Iran has no such ring.
It sits blunt in the mouth.
No image comes.
I turn out the light.
What will I dream?
I burrow into pillows,
still listening to Rachmaninov.
And sleep.
