Out of this world


Out of this world

                                                               

Snowdrops and bluebells

Grow beneath your feet

As you tread along

 

Twigs blossom pink and white

As you touch with your fingertips

 

Water flows

 From rocks and stones

As you caress with your tender hands

 

Moonlight glows

As you meander beneath crisp indigo skies

Fruits are filled with flavour

As you pick up to lay in your basket

 

Your heavenly taboon bread

Baked with love

Intertwined with the earth aroma

Fills my soul with warmth and joy

As you pass by

With your forehead, held up high

Life blossoms

Love, hope and delight

 

I knew you…. Free, as evening breeze

Cheerful, as morning sunshine

Dignified, as Palestine olive trees

Graceful, as Haifa summer clouds

Defiant, as Galilee  Mountains

Wild, as Banias waterfalls
Strong, as rocks of Nabi Samuel
 
Steadfast, as homes of Lifta
 
Deep, as caves of Beit Iksa

Mysterious, as scent of Jerusalem alleyways
Heartwarming, as Bisan autumn leaves
 
Compassionate, as Holy land shepherds

Patient, as rain drops filling the ocean

Gentle, as rainbow colours

Sweet, as childhood innocence

Pure, as angels’ hearts

I knew you free, as evening breeze

I loved you free, remarkable woman

My sweet grandmother
