Artist's description:

"Listen to the reed how it tells a tale,
complaining of separations,
Saying, 'Ever since I was parted from the reed-bed,
my lament has caused man and woman to moan.
It is only to a bosom torn by severance that I can unfold
the pain of yearning.
Everyone who is left far from his source wishes back
the time when he was united with it."
— Rûmi

The word "raghba" means yearning, desire and the pain of it.

Materials used:

Watercolour and metal leaf on Saunders Waterford paper.
