They had to run
hide in the brushes
of the Syrian country side
rains showered from above
no child should ever be hunted, abused
migrants on the run
they had no band
to champion a cause
rulers saw only weakness
unknowing the plans from the almighty
the comedy of tyrants...Read More

Meleager translations
If I am Syrian, what of it?
Stranger, we all dwell in one world, not its portals.
The same original Chaos gave birth to all mortals.

does Desire dwell with the dead?

Immigrants are very useful now
Roast a Turk  to  share with all your street

Icon of Syrian Revolution
How fast life goes! How slow we feel! 
When someone dear leaves us for real.
How hard it gets! How tough the deal! 
If they're sublime and have ideals. 
They pay so much and beat ordeals.
Their names spread and shake regimes.

The Refugees
those first two refugees 
driven from a gorgeous garden 
where bananas napped 
and grapefruit zapped taste buds 

where leafy limbs gave shelter 
and water was as sweet as wine 
no hunger sapped them 
no horror slapped them 

they looked back...Read More

Against  sadness:no-one here must weep
Nor lounge  about in melancholy deep

For  even masterpieces  ,was the price too steep?
We see the yellow chair  but not his views

Shifting Sands - A Syrian Prayer
I hope i have a pleasant death
somewhere in the wilderness, perhaps
clinging to a shriveled Apple, struggling
 to grow in the blazing sun, in a dusty
field on this warming, drying planet, or
maybe crushed beneath  a crumbling mosque
during prayers to heaven's...Read More

I'd LOVE an answer from You - Jesus did walk here
If every one of us, with a relationship burning
In heart and mind for Jesus, have been evangelizing

Why is it that the Temple Mount is out of Israel's hands
Arabs are all over the...Read More

Then crown Napoleon Bonaparte Emperor of France,
Who commands the French forces in wars raged across Europe.

Exploding pipe bombs.
Land fields that can take your arms off.
Driving off road, and frenzied, with excitement 
Adrenaline RAGING.

Weeping Webbed World
(Apropos of a Syrian Nightmare) 

Affronts to humanity streak the skies
Like once perched war eagles
Soaring over communities of prey
Where the lingering smell of death
Is as normal as the scent flowers once had.

A grieving webbed world in abject apathy
Awaits...Read More

Oh Syria

Innocent teary eyes
grief stricken face
you look everywhere with fear
and with feelings of helpless pain!

when you should be playing with 
dolls and dancing in the rain!
neither do you like to wear 
new dresses, 
nor sing, laugh, and play with the
toy train!

see how  frozen rice  brings gaiety,
from the weight of a half-starved life
children's palms etch the color of terrorism;

already the villainous hours smell of puss,
ripe lesions , and unbearable heat :
finger-bones snapping from gun-barrels
like the echo of death screams,

Me and my Olive Tree
I’m Syrian, from the Middle East, 
Where olives make so big a feast.
And olive oil goes with every meal, 
And black dried olives conceal, 
A great taste a few can feel!
Olive trees we know are very old,
Older than all that...Read More

Setting a place apart
The shaded lane leads to the estuary
and mud banks sculpted by the constant sea,
expose their drying backs beneath the sun
before once more in ebb and flow are gone.
Over a sty a path leads from the lane
to skirt a manor...Read More

As the Lord lives, it must be the Lord himself who will strike him, whether the time comes for him to die, or he goes out and perishes in battle. But the Lord forbid that I touch his anointed.

A pockmarked plane atop the wooden box
tilts as it dips in the Syrian void,
its hollow compartment lining the faults like
a silver ball which never rests but always 
rolls, always weary those worrisome holes
that chisel the quarry to calcified clumps.

Yet, none have seen a foxhole in a serious fight.
They haven’t a problem in offering up our sons.
No one has ever survived in fighting multiple fronts.

Premium Member Syria Reconstructed
It is in our fragile, nearly broken, exposure
that we are most available for love
and remedial gratitude,
rather than the louder applause
of our full-blown ballistic glory.

While exercising restrained patience breeds tolerance,
giving pregnant reign to co-empathy compels timeless flow
of organic eternity.

Empathy grows fragile...Read More
