Between Two Moments

When passion roars 

in our bosoms 

for mounting on horseback 

that breaks through fortresses

or mounting a cloud

to plant in its whiteness

the banners of madness

or ascending a star

to break in its space 

the barriers of silence 

it’s alright to search for a myth 

in whose folds we tuck  

a few details that

make known our presence

that they may 

give a couple of sparks  

or light up a couple of candles 

or add a couple of sentences

to the lines of our life, confined 

between two moments of the spirit’s manifestations  

the moment of its rise 

in a dumbfounded embryonic lump 

and the moment of its convulsion 

in a conquered heartbeat.

(Translated from Arabic)
