I have been told that my name has three meanings (a Persian derivative) dependent on pronunciation: “sunlight”, “love”, or “light of the moon”. I feel your words are a perfect description of me…

I went inside my heart to see how it was. Something there makes me hear the whole world weeping. ~ Rumi

Story

As a first generation Canadian of South Asian heritage, born and raised in Golden, B.C., Meharoona Ghani is grateful for being alive.

She has been told her first name is a Persian derivative with three possible meanings dependent on pronunciation: light of the moon, or sunlight, or love.

She has chosen to be known as light of the moon and she still believes in unicorns.

Love Always, 

Meharoona (Light of the Moon)

Other Side of Confessions

I tipped over confessions –
cheeks flushed knitted feelings.
Noble threads undone
relished calm body,
breathing moments.

My nose pressed under
left ear near jaw line…
“I fit right here with you.”
