The jungle .. الغابة


The beautiful photo is courtsey of my friend Robyn L.

سامقة اشجارها

تحيطني سيقانها

فكأني سجين غابة وارفة

أحس بحرِّها رغم زحامها

فأعجب كيف وأين ظلالها

فأمد بصري لعليائها

الي أذرع ملساء متنافره

من لهيب الشمس

تسن سنانها

الي عدو قد يكون انا ها هنا

فأعدوا في خلوها وخلائها

فلا انس في سكنها

ولا ظل يبدوا الا في بطنها

A wood like all

Imprisoned

Between the long legs

and the fallen stems

crack under my feet

The heat I feel

Makes me wonder

Shouldn’t there be

Plenty of shade

Eyes climb the trees

To the pointy bare beaming arms

Praying to the searing sun heat

Sharpening there teeth

Could that be , for me ..

Shocked I flee

As it came to me

The only shade here

Is down the soil

Deep under the trees

  1. It looks like a puzzle, your poem has two meanings !! Regards.

  2. I am going to leave my nest now – and flee to the woods myself, as I think I need to find that shade you speak off…”deep under the trees” … I will think of you when I am there… Sending you thoughts of hope, love and peace dear one ~

  3. So nice to see that you found some trees and some shade via Robyn….xomeryl

    • I had a sketch for my kind of shade .. The one that fits the gloomy words and the reason I wrote this anger purging words .. But Robyn was kind enough to ligthen the mood by her endless generosity .. Xxx
