قدس الأقداس


عندما تتألمين تتألمين بعنف ليس كألم الناس

عندما تحبين تحبين بعنف ليس كحب الناس

عندما تفرحين تفرحين بعنف ليس كفرح الناس

قدس الأقداس أنت

باعك الأنجاس في سوق النخاسة

عجبت هل من شئ على وجه هذه الارض لم نتعلمه منك؟

حتى وأنت ثكلى مثقلة بجراحك، تعتصرين ألما

تطلين علينا من محرابك بابتسامة فاتنة

تلقيننا دروسا في الفرح والعشق والامل

كنا قد نسيناها

وي كأن الله عندما قسم الجمال اعطى عُشره للكون ووالباقي كله لك

وعندما قسّم الطهر اعطى عُشره للكون والباقي كله لك

وعندما قسّم الصبر اعطى عُشره للكون والباقي كله لك

وعندما قسّم الآلام اعطى عُشرها للكون والباقي كله لك

وعندما قسّم الافراح اعطى عُشرها للكون والباقي كله لك

وي وكأن دموعك القدسية تأبى أن تنساب إلاّ مزاميراً بنكهة الجنة

علمينا الحب يا حبيبة فإنا قد نسيناهُ

علمينا كيف نجني الفرح من صحارى الأحزان

وكيف من بذور اليأس نحصد الأملا

Stitched


 

My wounded soul is a patch work

Chopped pieces of stubborn memories

Fraying at the edges

Vivid all around

Refusing to fade away

 

Stitched together with a thread of love

Embroidered with hope

My soul became a piece of art

Suited for a museum

 

Life On Hold Quilt


This quilt is very special to me ❤️

It’s called Life On Hold

It took me about three weeks to make, I finished on the last night, just before the departure of my beloved husband Khaled ❤️

I forgot to say that during my work on this quilt, Khaled was in hospital in a coma and it’s during those two agonizing weeks that quilt was embroidered

I gave it the name ‘Life on Hold’ reflecting Life in Exile for a Palestinian, and during my work my life was literally on hold during the period of Khaled being in coma 💔

I started making it just before Khaled went to hospital, he offered to help even though he never embroidered anything before  ❤️  He did try, bless his soul ❤️  and he managed a few stitches, and that is the more reason I love and cherish this quilt.

He left me part of him in there ❤️

 

 

 

I Love


.

Empty handed, I came

Except of a heart

Full of love

and a soul full of awe

 

 

Empty handed, I shall leave

Except of a heart

Full of love

and a soul full of awe

 

 

​If you ever wondered who I am

If you’re curious to know

If you want to remember me

With anything, after my departure

Two words

I LOVE

 

 

I love my children, a bequest from above

A peek into Heaven, and a love pure, Divine

 

 

I love my grandchildren, a whiff of angels, a taste of paradise

Hope they imbue, trust they sow and joy they enshrine

 

 

I love my mum, my flowery tiara, my song of praise

Her life she gives with glee, her heart tears for every passer by

 

 

I love my father, my crown, my honour, my wreath of fame

In humble gratitude, gracious blessings, my head bows down

 

 

I love my siblings every single one of them

Afar in their bodies, in my soul, ever so near, intertwined

 

 

I love my friends and kin

Those who are nigh and those who are far

Meadows of wildflowers, sway around my soul

 

I love you, and you and you and him and her

I love you all with all my heart, with all my soul

Every child gaping in awe

Every baby who saw the light and every one who’s not yet born

 

 

I Love

Every wrinkled face, carved with pain

Eyes shimmering with hope, soul filled with grace

Arms tender secure, what a holy embrace

 

I Love

Every father grinding his whole

To see his lovelies giggling with joy

A burning candle to brighten the way

Dispel all horror, secure the home

 

 

I Love

Every mother enduring agony

Sleepless nights, growing fears, flowing tears

No strings attached, no hidden agenda

Just love so pure, unconditional, perfect, sublime

 

I Love

I love the rustling of leaves, whispers of children, singing of nightingales

I love the crashing of waves on the seashore

I love the scent of jasmine blooming, and roses rambling on a wall

I love the aroma of grandma’s bread, fresh out of her taboon

 

I love colours of the rainbow

Blazing red​, burning orange

Bursting yellow, refreshing green

 Enchanting violet, magical indigo, and calming blue

 

 

I love animals, I love fish, I love birds and butterflies

I love leaves and coral reefs and dreamy skies

​I love grass, I love rivers and oceans azures

I love pebbles, I love cobbles and brave stones

I love mountains, rocky hills and sandy shores

I love raindrops, snowflakes, and misty due

I love trees and flowers​, all shapes and hues

 

 

I love the World

With all what it contains

With all my heart and all my soul

Every swimming star, twirling galaxy and dazzling blackhole

Every dancing atom, every praying particle, every spinning positron

 

Above all and most of all

I love the One and Only

Majestic beyond words

Compassionate beyond dreams

Infinite Beyond the grasp of minds

Whose love embraces all

 

 

If my heart would have a hole

My love would leak and fill a pail

The pail would flow and fill a stream

The stream would flood and fill a river

The river would deluge and fill an ocean

The ocean would expand and overflow

Earth would gush and drench the universe

Beneath the Throne of the One Most Loving, Most High

دموع صامتة


11054336_10206092356800386_4124764397207232527_o

وما تسقط من دمعة الا يعلمها الله
كل دمعة خوف
كل دمعة الم
كل دمعة حزن
دمعي صلاة

صمتي صلاة

954787_756908067658412_469824494_n

اتيتك يا الهي مثقلة بصمتي ودموعي
طرقت باب رحمتك
وافرغت همي على عتبات كرمك
حنانيك يا رب
حنانيك يا ذا الجود والكرم
حنانيك يا ودود يا ذا العفو والمنة

IMG_4002

فليتك تحلو والحياة مريرة
وليتك ترضى والانام غضاب
الا ليت الذي بيني وبينك عامر
وبيني وبين العالمين خراب
اذا صح منك الود فالكل هين
وكل الذي فوق التراب تراب

935563_176262372574001_1475025285_n

هاك قلبي دكه دكاً دكا
افدي به خلقك وارضك
هاك قلبي انثره ذرة ذرة
وفي زوايا الكون بعثره
عسى ان يورق املاً
ويزهر حبا وعطاءً

Silent tears


11054336_10206092356800386_4124764397207232527_o

Not a tear falls but that He knows it

Every tear of pain

Every tear of grief

Every tear of fear

84831866_2579645542270345_6372261841124458496_n

My tear is a prayer

My silence is a psalm of praise

IMG_4532

Darkness descends

All encrypted  doom and gloom

Run soul run, run away

O dear God, frantically I run to You

Burdened with my silence

Loaded to the brim with void

Drowning in an ocean of tears

I knock at the gates of Your Mercy

At the doorsteps of Your compassion,

I dump my agony, empty my grief

xxaa

O Most Compassionate

O  Most Kind,

Your pardon, I thirst, my Beloved

A sprinkle of Your kindness

A touch of Your grace

IMG_4002

 

“Wouldn’t I wish you’re pleased, even if life is bitter

Wouldn’t I wish you’re satisfied, even if others are annoyed

If only what’s between You and me is flourishing

Even if what’s between me and the world is a ruin

If your friendship is intact, then all is good

All that’s above earth, is dust”

 

Here is my heart, I give it back, grind it down

May it’s agony be a redemption

Here’s my heart, take it back

Scatter it’s atoms far and wide

In all eleven corners of the universe

Of it’s anguish, may hope sprout

May love grow and kindness bloom

IMG_3338

Show me the Way


 

Dear God

Ten years ago, I sent you a letter

Innocent, hopeful, trusting and pure

I gave me back to You

“Dear Most Loving

Here I am

An empty vessel

Lift me… Fill me… Use me

As You wish

My will is nothing

But Yours”

 

Today, I am back

Crawling on my knees

Knocking at Your door

Empty handed

Disillusioned

Overwhelmed

Dumbfounded

Broken

Bruised

Brutalized

Filled to the brim with horror and pain

Seeing evil in the eye, how could I not be?

 

 

I thought I’ve seen it all, before!

What a fool!

 

 

Dear Most Kind,

 

I knew it would be a rough ride

 

But, really, not that rough!

 

Dear Most Wise

 

I am not asking you “why did You create evil”

 

I know You didn’t!

 

You just bestowed upon us freewill

 

 

Dear Most Loving

 

I am not asking “why don’t You stop them”

 

That means taking their freewill away

 

Dear Most Graceful

 

I am simply asking You for guidance

 

In this ocean of wickedness and gloom

 

What do You want me, little old Nahida, to do?

 

What can we in the Camp of Goodness do?

 

How can we stop this evil, once and for all?

 

Show me the way

 

Show us the way
