Majid Naficy: Seven Sacred Songs

There is a footstep And the light of a lantern. I hide myself beneath an old blanket And become filled with the aroma of wheat.

Majid Naficy: Seven Sacred Songs

Author: pranabaxom

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

  1. Does this one picture depict all seven songs? Just wondering. I only recognize Adam and Eve, the serpent, and sin. What am I supposed to see? If it is too complicated for me, okay. Might be like me telling you you write love poetry like Solomon. Today’s post by you was particularly like Solomon. I don’t know how you ever came up with the idea that Christians think sex was the original sin, however. Perverted sex is sinful but certainly not the original sin.

    1. Oneta, you did confuse me with your comments. Then I realized that you are responding to two different posts. So I will try to separate my answer.

      1. I personally found Majid Nafisy’s poems, all seven of them, to be very intense, bold and strong. Yes, it can be argued that it may sound rebellious but there are truths in those words that will appeal to some and appal some.
      I am not a critique and not going to analyse someone’s poems. The poems appealed to me and I shared with my readers. Not all readers may like it and it is fine.

      2. In my poem where did I mention Christianity?😀
      Hah, your bias is showing.
      The Children of the Books all subscribe to the same origin and similar stories. However puritanical beliefs are there in all religion.
      Perverted sex – did I even made an oblique reference to it😀.
      Wow, I used to think I had a fertile imagination. You beat me to it partner. Wish we could have met during our youth. Sure would have raised a tempest in the tea cup😀

      Take care Oneta and stay safe (and young at heart).

    2. And my knowledge of Solomon is only from two sources, the movie and brief mention in The Merchant of Venice.
      Sure I would have written songs for Sheba😀, but I don’t think you are referring to those type of songs, or are you?

    1. Of course the movie was not authentic. Yul Brynner as Solomon and Gina Lolobrigida was Sheba. I don’t remember when it was released but I saw it when I was a teenager. And I was smitten, not by Solomon of course😀.
