My Poems: Spring Web
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
This is dedicated to my high school class and more specifically to Amina, Mally and Sarah for all the madness those days.
Spring rain and the heart is a bloom.
Flowers full and soon there is no room.
Things get lost in my head.
And sometimes I forget what I have said.
A thin film, a reflection in the sun.
A fresh spun web, thin and intricate.
Thinking of all the things I have done
And how time can make things so delicate.
I never let you know what it is, was or will be.
So much gets caught in the silence of the sea.
I never wished you trouble or harm.
I never meant you discomfort or alarm.
Laces and lines, covering the horizon view.
A web, and I am in the middle.
Oh there are so many things I wish you knew.
Life is one endless riddle.
Drops of dew on the reflecting filament.
After rain comes the burning firmament.
I wish you to be your best and free.
I hope for you the best travels over life’s silent sea.
For some reason, reading it the second time, it does not sound as gentle as I wanted it to. Ah, well, I just never meant you trouble and I wish you the best, okay?
