Murmur of the Land

Maedeh Tafvizi
MFA CER 2024
In the tender hands of clay, I find my personal canvas,
Where the earth becomes my muse, profound and endless.
A longing, deep and intimate, for a place to call my own,
Missing the feeling of belonging, like seeds to soil sown.
Am I even missing home, I ponder in the night,
Where is home, a question that ignites a restless light.
In this clay, in this land, I navigate my grief,
Seeking roots, my heart’s relief, in the soil beneath.
