May it rest in peace


Over there, in the horizon

Facing the nebulous where Heaven meets Earth

By the ancient well, where baby swallows used to drink

Near the valley of almonds and prickly pears

On top of the hill of apricot and mulberries

Beneath a stone, removed away once, by my grandfather

To make a pathway for his flock of goats

Under a majestic olive tree

Between an array of irises and a lone poppy

My heart was born

Picture 442aa

Over there, in the horizon

Where I could no longer see

Clinging on a stone,

Held once by a little hand

Far, far away from me

My heart was buried

Picture 391aasa

A Plea


Dearest of all

This soul is aching

Trembling in pain

Bodies of maimed toddlers

Bleeding in vain

10488132_892566460757674_213125475698687539_n

O dearest of all

Heal this aching soul

With heavenly cure

24500_340550041306_306817171306_4005589_3612779_n

O dearest of all

This soul is shattered

Weeping in despair

Is this our planet home , or is it really hell on earth

Does anyone notice, or even care

10298693_10153020267544992_2684786395179165254_n

O dearest of all

Please mend this shattered soul

Caress her to endure

598594_757183310964221_328610205_n

O dearest of all

This soul is tarnished

Screams of the dying, what a nightmare

Babies soaked in blood

More than anyone can bare

10557447_811878652190824_5420216057204093463_n

O dearest of all

Please rinse this tarnished soul

With mist and snow

1480696_534924323271895_1501105471_n

O dearest of all

This soul is cold

Bombing all around, death is everywhere

Crowds of gazing eyes

But no one is there

10505392_1466667036914893_8191786107339183849_n

O dearest of all

Please warm this cold soul

Love divine serene azure

1374204_756907607658458_715039462_n

O dearest of all

This soul is dimmed

Its spark has long gone

Extermination of Your children

O humanity, what have you done

10485757_4248852995120_619298588774883045_n

O dearest of all

Please fill this dimmed soul

With wonders of your nour*

Cleanse it pure

A dewdrop agape

Dazzled in awe

Yearning to be with You

* light

Alive !


O my O my !

Didn’t I bomb your village to smithereens?

Didn’t I crush your bones last July ?

Didn’t I blow your head up to pieces?

Didn’t I shoot you in the eye?

What are you doing here?

Why are you still alive?

Just tell me why?

* * *

Yes, indeed

You did kill us all

But

We… forgot… to… die

Our Humanity …انسانيتنا


IMG_5807

.

انسانيتنا تتجلى في عبق عشقنا للعدل والرحمة والحرية

كما حديقة غناء في لب ارواحنا

ليس على ضحل قشورنا بل في سويداء القلوب

هناك… فقط هناك

تولد انسانيتنا المفعمة بالحب للخالق وما خلق


وهناك تزهر وجدانياتنا بإلاخلاص والايثار والتواضع والسكينة


فلا نزاع ولا صراع ولا خوف ولا قلق

Our humanity is reflected in the fragrance of our passion

for justice, compassion and freedom

A meadow at the core of our souls

Not in the shallow shells of mortals,

but in the deepest melancholy of our beings

There and only there

Our humanity is born

Teeming with  love of the Creator and creation

There, blooms our hearts

 with sincerity, altruism, humility and serenity

Where no dispute, no conflict, no fear, no anxiety
