Tehran

در باغ عزلت من 

نمایشگاه نقاشی آریتا شهرزاد 

افتتاحیه 4 بهمن ماه 1392

غزلی برای قالی باغی - توسط شاعر صوفی گمنام از سده نهم هجری

در این فرش، بهار زیبا همیشه زنده است، ایمن از سوز آتش تابستان و از بادهای سترگ پائیز، از ستم یخ و برف زمستان، ساکن و شادمانه شکوفان. 

چشم های خشکیده از گرمای بیابان در سایه مخملی اش التیام میابند. در ریزش فواره هایش و موج حوض هایش، در خنکای خلوت اش اندام زخم خورده ترمیم می شوند و قلبهای خسته دگربار به شوق می رسند. 

راه آمده سترناک بود. 

گیج از یکنواختی و استهزا شده دردست اشباح هزیانی، احاطه شده با مرگ کمین کرده در پوشش های گوناگون : اجنه های وحشتنانک و جانوران سبع،گرمای سوزان و طوفانهای مشتعل: پس از این همه بیم و خطر، سرانجام آزاد: همه گان در باغ ایمن . 

اینجا زمین رنجیده سرانجام می زاید. از مرگ مسلم دنیائی نو و زیبا متولد میشود.در لایه های زیرین خاک، سنبل ها در بند خفته اند. در بیابان سنگی غم افزا و عریان - بی زمان و با حوصله و غرق در اندیشه - آگاه از زندگِی در درون، با وعده باروری و وفور، و همیشه در عطش رستگاری: زمین سرنوشت خود را آشکار می کند. 

پس آیا نمی توانیم این زیبائی را که منشآ امید است تسخیر کنیم و بازگردانیم؟ روشن مثل آئینه که در آبهای خاطراتمان شناور باشد یا بدام افتاده در تور نامرئی شاعران، بس وسیع، بس شکننده، در عین حال اسیرکننده و فاتح واقعیتهای فّرار؟  

تنیده از طلا و لاجورد، درخشان چون آهن خمیده. پوشش گیاهان - رویاگونه در درخشندگی الوان یا نه - در سایه های فاخر لاکی های صیقلی، آرام ولی قوی، در قهوه ای های خاموش و عسلی های خالص، یشمی های خنک و دارچینی دلپذیر: این دنیای پریان دوباره واقعی میشود.

در این تصادمات ناگهانی آغوشی شیرین را جستجو کن، در دلربائی آهنگی موزون با وقار گام بردار و یا با شناب جست و خیز کن: پدیدار شدن، عقب نشینی کردن، بازگشتن. با قطعیتی آرام. تمامی مناقشات به آشتی میرسند، در مخلوطی ازهم پیمانی، همچون هم نوایان که هر قطعه از آوازی را شادمانه میخوانند، و در وجد بازی چندصدائی، شناور در نرمی یا وحشیانه آزاد، و در عین حال لنگر انداخته در ابدیت .

 Ode To A Garden Carpet - By an unknown Sufi Poet ( Circa 1500)

Here in this carpet lives an ever-lovely spring; Un-scorched by summer’s ardent flame, Safe too from autumn’s boisterous gales, Mid winter’s cruel ice and snow,‘Tis gaily blooming still. Eyes hot-seared by desert glare find healing in its velvet shade. Splashing foundations and rippling pools, In cool retreats sore-wearied limbs restore, And tired hearts awake with joy once more. The way was cruel. 

Baffled by monotony and mocked by phantoms delirious, Beset by stalking Death in guises manifold; The dreaded jinns, the beasts ferocious, The flaming heat and the exploding storms; Form all these perils here at last set free; In the Garden all find security. 

Here the long-laboring Earth at last gives birth. From apparent death, a new and lovely world is born; Below the desert’s dusty floor, the jacinth imprisoned lies. The stony wilderness so bleak and bare, In ageless patience broods, aware of a life within, the promise of fertility and abundance. Ever longing for deliverance. The world at last reveals its destiny.

Can we not then capture and restore The loveliness that gave us hope, Still brightly mirrored on memory’s gliding waters Or snared in the poets’ invisible net, So wide, so fragile, Yet captor and conqueror of realities elusive? 

Wrought in gold and azure, bright as carved metal. Dream-like foliage in sparking tones is caught, Or else, in sumptuous shades of glossy lacquer, Quiet but intense; in muffled browns and honey pure, Jasper cool and mellow cinnabar, That fairy land comes real again. 

In sudden collisions find sweet embrace; In rhythms enchanting, with stately pace, Or rollicking speed; emerging, retreating, Reversing, in peaceful finality . Their conflicts reconcile, All in confederation blending Like a chorus in part-song gladly singing, In contrapuntal play rejoicing, Floating soft or wildly free; Yet anchored in eternity.

More About Tehran

Overview and HistoryTehran is the capital of Iran and the largest city in the Middle East, with a population of fifteen million people living under the peaks of the Alborz mountain range.Although archaeological evidence places human activity around Tehran back into the years 6000BC, the city was not mentioned in any writings until much later, in the thirteenth century. It's a relatively new city by Iranian standards.But Tehran was a well-known village in the ninth century. It grew rapidly when its neighboring city, Rhages, was destroyed by Mongolian raiders. Many people fled to Tehran.In the seventeenth century Tehran became home to the rulers of the Safavid Dynasty. This is the period when the wall around the city was first constructed. Tehran became the capital of Iran in 1795 and amazingly fast growth followed over the next two hundred years.The recent history of Tehran saw construction of apartment complexes and wide avenues in place of the old Persian gardens, to the detriment of the city's cultural history.The city at present is laid out in two general parts. Northern Tehran is more cosmopolitan and expensive, southern Tehran is cheaper and gets the name "downtown."Getting ThereMehrabad airport is the original one which is currently in the process of being replaced by Imam Khomeini International Airport. The new one is farther away from the city but it now receives all the international traffic, so allow an extra hour to get there or back.TransportationTehran driving can be a wild free-for-all like some South American cities, so get ready for shared taxis, confusing bus routes and a brand new shiny metro system to make it all better. To be fair, there is a great highway system here.The metro has four lines, tickets cost 2000IR, and they have segregated cars. The women-only carriages are the last two at the end, FYI.Taxis come in two flavors, shared and private. Private taxis are more expensive but easier to manage for the visiting traveler. Tehran has a mean rush hour starting at seven AM and lasting until 8PM in its evening version. Solution? Motorcycle taxis! They cut through the traffic and any spare nerves you might have left.People and CultureMore than sixty percent of Tehranis were born outside of the city, making it as ethnically and linguistically diverse as the country itself. Tehran is the most secular and liberal city in Iran and as such it attracts students from all over the country.Things to do, RecommendationsTake the metro to the Tehran Bazaar at the stop "Panzda Gordad". There you can find anything and everything -- shoes, clothes, food, gold, machines and more. Just for the sight of it alone you should take a trip there.If you like being outside, go to Darband and drink tea in a traditional setting. Tehranis love a good picnic and there are plenty of parks to enjoy. Try Mellat park on a friday (fridays are public holidays), or maybe Park Daneshjou, Saaii or Jamshidieh.Remember to go upstairs and have a look around, always always always! The Azadi Tower should fit the bill; it was constructed to commemorate the 2500th anniversary of the Persian Empire.Tehran is also full of museums such as:the Contemporary Art Museumthe Abghine Musuem (glass works)the 19th century Golestan Royal Palace museumthe museum of carpets (!!!)Reza Abbasi Museum of extraordinary miniaturesand most stunning of all,the Crown Jewels Museum which holds the largest pink diamond in the world and many other jaw-dropping jewels.Text by Steve Smith.
