Tooba - Shahrnoush Parsipour


"Mahdokht planted herself on the riverbank in the fall. She groaned throughout the fall. Her feet were slowly frozen into the ground. The cold autumn rain tore her clothes to shreds. She was left half naked in rags. She shivered until winter came, and then she froze. In mid-spring the tree in her body exploded. In an eternal metamorphosis the parts of Mahdokht separated from each other. She was in pain, and felt like she was giving birth. The tree had turned completely into seeds. A mountain of seeds. A strong wind blew the seeds of Mahdokht into the water. Mahdokht travelled with the water. She travelled all over the world."
