At first I thought the poetry was weird and a little silly, but as I listened I became enthralled. These short statements are so rich with meaning and every time I listen I get something different to take away. Love it!

As an amateur poet, my first response to hearing this recording was total despair...Ladinsky's translations and Nataraja's reading is so frickin' moving and gutsy that I have given up all hope of creating a love quatrain that will ever come close. The music by Stevin McNamara is more Indian than Persian, but is largely responsible for the power of this recording. Warning: play this in very small doses, just 1-2 tracks at a time or you may blow out a tire. ;) - AY
