DO NOT FORGET Your wired mind larger than Arabia like a continent shrouded with beauty and rage, I imagine you recalling the gush from Indian winds the taste salted by curry fragrance as your mouth drolls two languages, till lashes of day forget night’s kiss... Oh, but do not forget how desert sands whisper your songs, to drain your troubles on pita of seed-blessed lawns, your eyes traveling across gentle sky and down below, see the jasmines naming your dreams upon child-woman’s feet...for life-light sparks in your womb, breath swelling a prayer around moist dew... and here, through love for self and kin, you are safe within the overflowing beads of a tranquil moon ; your mouth a garden of bright joys unseen that even in ruins of wired mind, your breath shines among rocks... Oh, do not forget the 'I' in your life. ................................ Yasmin is a talented poet. She is from India but works hard in Saudi Arabia; direly missing her family most of the time.. I hope she comes back-- she left Poetry Soup a year ago due to the strain in her life. Here is one of Yasmin's lines: " Floundering, groping for a rational return..." Contest, Silent One's Tribute 6/30/2013
