The Sun Rises
Nadja, an Iranian dancer in Sweden, performs a dance tribute to Forough Farrokhzad on a song by Jahan based on the poem "The Sun Rises," Aftab Mishavad.
This is one of Forough's most beautiful love poems. I put a full English translation of that poem by Sholeh Wolpe here last January.
Seeing this video has had me reading that poem to myself all day. Here are the first few verses. You can go here to read the whole beautiful poem in English. Have a good Tuesday everybody!
Look how sorrow in my eyes
melts to water drop by drop,how my rebellious shadow fallscaptive to the sun.Look. Sparks ignite me,flames engulf me,carry me high,trap me in the sky.Look how my universenow streams with shooting stars.
