With Iran so much in the limelight, Simerg seems to have been drawn into the country too, but for a different reason – to showcase some of the country’s rich and vibrant culture with a portrayal of its people, foods, and historical treasures. Nevin and Muslim Harji’s photos of Iran that we are publishing this and next week bring to light the splendours of Iran.
At Simerg we have have decided we wish to remain with Iran for some more time, and for a very good reason. For thousands of years, the country has celebrated the joyous arrival of spring with the celebration of Navroz. We want you to tell us in a short poem how you view the arrival of spring and the beautiful changes the season brings forth with it. How does spring or the festival of Navroz inspire and invigorate you? You are invited to participate by submitting a poem on the theme “Springtime Renewal” or “Springtime Change.”
