Hiva Panahi in day of poetry, nyrb NEWS with "Ash Person"


ASH PERSON by Hiva Pinahi
Dreams come from far away places
The stones, the birds and I take on new forms of life
Dreams have their own road
And we live far away these days, like dreams.

Dr. Hiva Panahi met with Pen of America

Hiva Panahi, author and academic with Kurdish origins who survived from political persecution in Athens, Greece, met with staff of International Pen in NYC. During her discussion of her life in first Iran and then while living in exile in Greece, she said, "Greek authorities have been selling my life all these years. I was considered a source of income and personal development for them, and because I was not an easy case they found people in academics places and persecuted me. I was in a trap of death and this tragedy has a big cost for my health and destroyed everything which I have built in 18 years life in Greece. It's not a secret Iranian regime is "generous" to pay for political persecution everywhere......"

A woman’s little gripes, Hiva Panahi


I have been in New York just five months but I have already had an emotional attachment to this city. This January I was in Manhattan and was met again with simple things like the simple smiling of people and that was wonderful. In my time at Columbia University I had taken the road to learn about this place by luck with no program and no information. The magical buildings with incredible spiritual aura that was written by Pro Ecclesia Dei. I stumbled into the library with great esthetic; it was a blessing and I had a rare sensation of gentleness. I said hello to Homer, Aristotle, Plato and Cicero. I sat down in the corner near the entry and for hours I had conversation with the statute of Athena; this atmosphere moved me so much. My broken health, my broken life and broken career, there were all the broken pieces of my life - like a prayer for new life in the new city, in New York City.

A woman’s little gripes, Hiva Panahi


Pleasant surprises may not be many but they arrive as essential truths. They come to erase the traces of those weaklings who blocked the flow of our lives. They come to give a potent end to the era of the carnivores we happen to meet, who hurt us in the corners of our lives. Pleasant surprises arise from pure logic, nesting in distant and nearby places.


They are slow to appear, but when they arrive they are light for the eyes.
Truly, in pure logos  flourish the friendliest, most wise human thoughts. Truly logos is discovery. Beyond doubt the experience of truth is poetic, to fill space and time ....
