    “I found the marriage of visual, musical and poetic imagery in Niloufar Talebi's work to be touching, effective and an ideal way to discover and appreciate contemporary Iranian poetry.”

    Ruba'ie #45
    Within thy soul a soul doth dwell:
    Go, seek it well!
    Within thy mountain is mine;
    get it for thine.

    The sufi seek as he doth go,
    if thou canst so:
    search not for him thy self apart,
    but search thy heart.
