More sense to the senses

More sense to the senses

Copy of Picture 375aa  

I am fascinated by my hands

With, I carry my lavender basket

Stitch French knots and knit tiny socks

Write my poems and paint lilac twilight

But more enchanting

Caressing with 

The face of my beloved

And holding on my babe’s hand


I am fascinated by my ears

With, I hear birds singing

Enjoy melodic tunes

Learn new facts

Listen to fairytale stories

But more captivating

I hear with

My baby calling “mama”

And the tender heartbeat

Of the one I love


I am fascinated by my nose

With, I smell my favourite foods

Pineapple cake and ginger biscuit

Coffee, jasmine and lemon zest

Ocean waves and waterfalls

But more intriguing

The sweet scent of my twin-half

And the delicate fragrance

Of my newborn infant



I am fascinated by my eyes

With, I perceive the world in full colour

Beautiful butterflies

Flowers… trees… sky and stars

But more mesmerizing

The tears running down

Yearning for my soul mate

and gazing at my child sleeping



I am fascinated by my mouth

With, I taste delicious flavours

Tangy oranges… juicy mangoes

Sweet strawberries

But more alluring

Kissing my baby’s feet

And whispering words like

“Sweetheart… I love you”


“Thank you God for all these things”

Palestinians are at the heart of the conflict in the M.E Palestinians uprooted by force of arms.. Yet faced immense difficulties have survived, kept alive their history and culture, passed keys of family homes in occupied Palestine from one generation to the next.
