O mighty Sandy

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

Taking a leap of faith ..

“Take no risk son”

Mother said

“I fear for you

from a deceitful fate”

 

The heat under my feet

The heaviness of the stillness

Itching on my sole

.. go..don’t wait ..

 

and behind these hills

and the unsettled clouds

Lies the temptation

Of a dream I create

 

So I depart

the recitation of certainty

and the suffocation of boredom

the overweight and

gruelling waste

 

With a baby’s shaky feet

and a gritty heart

Fearless and doubtless

With tiny steps or even a mighty fall

 

Life is certainly a prize for

A leap of faith
