The Tree

The Tree *

that tells endless stories

of passionate seasons and fading histories

longing people for solitude

is worth listening to!

I am all ears

embracing your deep voice

foretelling the past and the future

of innocent children

engraving their names in your heart

their laughs embedded in your shadow.

O sweet memories

Charming little hands

immersed in motherly love

of a tree that unites

all peoples of the world

in her loving soul!

 

O trees of all times

mingle with my rosy dreams

bear my feathery secrets

and let me Fly!

 

*To the memory of  a friend, Ruquiah Al Obidan. May Allah bless her soul.

In my eyes she was a tree that embraced everyone in her community and drew smiles on all faces and gave love and care unconditionally.
