Body And Soul ! / Journey.

The essential compound of our being are body and soul.

Both are connected to our will and our intellect.

We have to realize that the body is only temporal.

Sooner or later it will expire then it will decay.

But the soul is destined to live through eternity.

Its up to us to decide who would be the captain ,

To steer the ship of our life and our destiny.

To be captivated with earthly matters, or to be,

prepared to decide how our journey w i l l end.

If You Weren’t In My Life ! / Luckiest Man.(Post # 570)

If you weren’t in my life !

l would if pictured you in a million captivating portraits.

Your face l would if etched it on the moon and the stars.

Your name l would if engraved it on the shore’s pearls and shells.

Your eyes engrained in my mind so vivid and clear.

Like the clearness of mid summer day.

Relentlessly l would if sailed the oceans with my ship.

Like an eagle’s eagerness l would if flew the skies

Searching for the lady , the dream , my charming dove.

The fate granted me my wish , most gentle and kind.

l met you in reality to complete my other half .

You made me the luckiest man for becoming my wife.

Just Once ! / Blooms . ( Post # 569 )

There are those who waste their lives,

Distance themselves from the others .

Rather than trying to create a beautiful relation.

Why don’t they renew their lives with tolerance and kindness?

Why they deprive themselves all the happiness ?

If they try ,the moon will look for them much brighter.

The stars will look for them prettier with laughter.

Even the tress before Spring will bloom faster.

When will they realize they will live only once ?

Will they reconsider before they miss their chance ?

Do Not Be Afraid ! / The Ultimate Hope.( post # 531)

Christ said.”The earth and the heavens are passing but my words will live forever.Who believes is already saved.”


Despite the turbulence and the uncertainty of the time ,”do not be afraid.”
Everyone of us is afraid of something .Afraid of our jobs,relations,schools,the future,sickness,afraid of the unknown,persecution,afraid of old age and afraid of death.

Rejoice for  Christ said .”” Do not be afraid,for l will always be with you no matter what happens to the end of time.I will never leave you or forsake you . Even though the future is uncertain , you can be absolutely sure of your ultimate destination .l will hold you by your  hand and afterward l will take you into heaven.””

Poet’s Affection and Agony ! / Love In The Arabian Desert Part II ! / (Post # 561)

The Arabian Bedouin poet is naive ,he tries to express his feelings with spontaneity and naturally .His words come out of his heart ,mind soul and innocence .

The one l love , you are not getting near,

And l can’t get closer to your tent day or night.

l am like a new chick in a little boy’s  hand .

He squeezes the chick between his fingers.

Causing the chick to taste death’s bitter agony.

The Child is amused with his catch and release game.

Knowing not what suffering he is causing the one in captivity.

And the captive chick is featherless,unable to set herself free and fly.

Love In The Arabian Desert ! / Part I.(Post # 560)

Love’s affection in the Arabian desert captivates the depth of human’s feelings and senses.Fair yet so daring and provocative . Loving a maiden transcends even the point of adoring and admiration .

Infatuated poets and horsemen depict their passion like the phoenixes trying to reach the threshold of the skies,before they are exhausted , breath their last breath and die.

Love and compassion burn them to ashes yet from their ashes they rise again to their very youthful being and alive.Their souls seems to be in existence since the existence of the universe.For as long their hearts beat they rejuvenate and thrive.

The poets in the Arabian desert are like the Sparrows ,but they don’t know how the sparrows survive.They are wanderers despite the freedom they enjoy in the fast sky.they sing soulful melodies for the trials of life they face to raise their chicks .

The poet suffers the agony of loving a woman who doesn’t love him in return or foresees his feeling,his helplessness ,the remoteness and his solitude he has to endure for the rest of his life.
