I am full of light and sand,
Full of trees,
I am full of roads, bridges, rivers, and waves,
Full of a shadow of a leaf on the water,
How lonely I am inside.
From the poem of “The expanse of green” by Sohrab Sepehri, a famous Iranian poet
Translated and dedicated to Carl Leggo by Leila Bolouri, a Master’s in Education student at the University of Victoria
