Every Monday, the Ottawa Persian Radio program Namaashoum runs from 7 to 9 pm EST. At 8 pm (EST), Namaashoum features a Farsi program showcasing Contemporary Canadian Poets.
This week’s episode (Monday, December 7) will feature my poem The Finches, published in my collection The Cowichan Series. It will be read in both English and Farsi.
This is such an amazing opportunity to hear my words spoken in a language unfamiliar to me. Seeing my words in the Farsi script is so moving! Farsi is a cradle for poetry throughout the ages, and many fine poems have written in this language.
