Don’t Miss Out


Get off your seat

Hold on very tight

Your fractured wings

And tearful soul

 

Meander outside

With a limping heart

A dreary story

A sack filled with pain

Wander in a meadow

Hug a weeping willow

Kiss a sleepy flower

Sway with the breeze

 

 

Flung open the gates

of your weary heart

Exhale all sorrow

Breath in the Light

Send waves of love

Up up so high

Violet and blue

Paint pink the sky

Awe struck in wonder

Bathing in splendour

Draw the world a rainbow

Up above the clouds

 

Watch God’s glory

Cascade like rain

Watch God’s wonder

Cascade like rain

Watch God’s love

Cascade like rain

 

We Teach Love, Sir


Only in Palestine

 

Two Palestinian prisoners, one has been sentenced for 21 years and his friend has been sentenced for 7 years.

 

The friend who has the lowest sentence and after the approval of his mother, put a request to carry an extra 7 years on behalf of his friend, and to reduce the sentence of his friend.

 

His request was approved and they both were released  together yesterday, after 14 years in prison.

 

They celebrated together, along with their mothers, families and friends.

 

God’s Language


 

God speaks in many different ways

God speaks in light, shades, colours and rainbows

Ultraviolet, red, mauve and umber

 

 

God speaks in codes and cryptic language

Pi  𝛑 and Phi Φ, crystal clear, baffling signs

Harmonious psalms and magical numbers

 

 

Gods speaks in letters: “be”, WOW, it is

In waves, in quarks and supernovas

Infinitesimal, gigantic splendour

 

 

God speaks in images that capture your soul

Can you hear the melody of a baby’s hand

wrapped around his mama’s finger

 

 

God speaks in rhyme, sublime and tender

In the fragrance of a flower

Embracing life with joyful wonder

 

God speaks in roaring prose, majestic, supreme

In the pounding of the ocean

In the yowl of piercing thunder

 

 

God speaks in a voice, august superb

In the trickling of a stream

Running its course, no rest, no slumber

 

 

God speaks in hymns, enchanting serene

In the awe-inspiring DNA

and the elegance of nuclae

 

 

Gods speaks in empathic poesy

In the sorrowful tears of a doleful child

and the shimmering sparkle in his hopeful eyes

 

 

God speaks in sonnet of elation

In chants of gratitude and silent prayer

In the grace of souls, teeming of devotion

 

 

God speaks the language of brilliance

In the axioms of mathematics

In stars dancing, harmonious motion

 

God speaks in Divine verses

Perfection and bliss, imbued in euphoria

Infused in hearts of prophets and children

 

 

Stay still

Close your eyes, open your heart wide

Can you hear God’s throbbing whispers?

 

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 ❤️

“Life On Hold”

It took me about three weeks to make, I finished on the 19 December 2005, just the last night before the departure of my beloved husband Khaled ❤️

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. Moreover, during this work my life was literally on hold, for the entire two weeks period of Khaled being in coma 💔

I started making it just days before Khaled went to hospital, he offered to help, even though he never embroidered or even stitched 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
