Once upon a time, I lived in Heaven

Once upon a time 
When I was a little girl
My dreams were wild and colourful 
 Just like my hair
Like all boys and girls
I grew inside a rose
When I was a little girl
I played around
Floating over waterlilies
Bouncing in the shadow of poppies
Hiding under garden leaves
and in my grandma’s shawl
Gathering stars 
Thumbelina I was called, by my fairy friends
 Who often hovered around the hills of  Beit Iksa, where angels dwell
 Chasing lilac footsteps of my fairy friends
 Fluttering my wings,
 I flew up up and away 
To the peak of Nabi Samuel
 Up there
 Close to Heaven
Overwhelmed with the magic of my existence 
 Astounded by being AWARE
 Full of love, unbound
Mind blown away
 In adoration
Face to the ground, I pray
Praising the One Sublimes
For a wondrous gift of life 
 At twilight, I made my way down
Rolling in a metal barrel
Heading to my grandparents’ home
 Little children gathered
 Hearts pounding
Eyes open wide
In curious anticipation
 Listening to my grandfather stories
Of men, women and children
 With lives of purity
And hearts of gold
In the stillness of night
 We could hear prophets breathing
 We could see them praying side by side
 Bewildered by the grace of mother and son
 Into dreamland, we drifted away
Where love grew on trees 
 Peace covered the ground 
Kindness filled the oceans
Joy descended from the sky as rain
Colourful words swirled around

 YES . . .


 Once upon a time 
 I lived in HEAVEN
 Nostalgic, I recall

  1. Flower of tranquility
    Emanation of sublime
    Calming of the water
    Lantern of the mind
    Radiating essence
    Rushing up the way
    Strings dynamic hummingbirds
    Echos rolling waves
    Gardens of all sanctifying
    Blooming living earth
    Nurturing with starlight
    Drawing universe
    Heavens of the moment
    Hearts rush to the sky
    Weaving through in butterfly’s
    Tranquil flowers of sublime
