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 stroke them

With your fingertips

 

Water flows

 From rocks and stones

As you caress them

With your tender hands

 

Moonlight glows

As you wander beneath

Crisp indigo skies

Fruits are filled with flavour

As you pick them up

To lay down in your basket

 

Your heavenly bread

Baked with love

Intertwined

With the aroma of the earth

 Coming out of your clay oven

Fills my soul

With warmth and joy

As you break it to put into my mouth

And as you pass by

With your forehead, held up high

Life blossoms

With love, hope

And delight

 

I knew you…. Free, as evening breeze

Cheerful, as morning sunshine

Compassionate, as warm autumn leaves

Wild, as winter waterfall

Dignified, as Palestine olive trees

Graceful, as summer clouds

Defiant, as Jerusalem Mountains

Strong, as rocks of Lifta and Beit Iksa

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
