Sip of words and Snack at color

Let me sip my cup of words

and nibble on a bite of color

for both together

give the most luxurious belch!

intoxicated with inspiration

I forget all my aggravation,

all, at the quench of my thirst!

Let me tip my pen in honor of my reader

and flip my brush in honor of my admirer

For I feel I have found an old friend named satisfaction

at the silent consumption

of this humble interaction!

Destiny is like a Lizard

Destiny is like a lizard

when it finds its prey

it becomes invisible

it’s colors matching its surroundings

ready to make its pounce

and other times

it gets devoured

when its seen

by birds that keep an eye

from up high

just like people

who look at the world

from up high

and find what they’re looking for

 

Man Arafa, Gharafa

It concerns me

How little do I know!

How bereaved I am, with all the unknown

Wise thoughts and reflections, ready to be picked

Where ever I go

Oh woe is me, if I miss these hidden supple fruits!

How could I allow myself

to enjoy small bits of sugar

of all facts and the apparent

when that which is bilghayb

is all the more pleasant!

Run Away to Heaven

Run away to heaven

leave everything behind

even the things that made you happy,

because it will all weigh you down.

Run away to heaven.

The trek is only so long.

So be patient as you sprint

and take deep breathes

as you sprint along.

 

But I’m running to my grave.

I don’t know at which age I’ll reach it.

It worries me that I’ll make mistakes,

even as I divorce the world.

If I’m running to my grave,

which is in all directions,

whichever I face, does it make a difference-

whatever decision I make?

A world through beauty

It’s because you aren’t perfect and you cry because you know it

But then when they tell you you’re beautiful enough times

you start to believe it..

and then you see it.

And seeing your own beauty is like gazing into another world. Because your view of the world changes when you see it through your beauty. A beauty that you believe in.

and thus you believe in the world that you now tread in.

and happily live in it because you are now in it.
