Respect The Clay

Respect The Clay short poem

Photo by photonate.com

Around the world
Millions of us
Both young and old
Are born to cross
The ocean of being
A sight for seeing
Cry, start with a breath
Sail, cross to death
Back to soil you are
To the forest floor
Underground you stay
This is the way
Never neglect
Always protect
The soil you are
Made of, to declare
Your respect
Reach, no regret
Respect the clay
As long as you stay
When your sailing ship stops
Cosmic law chose tops
To place you where
There is no despair

I am a Lebanese female poet, researcher and writer in Arabic and English.Fourth of January, 1957 I was born in Quarnayel, Lebanon. Being an only daughter among three sons, gave my whole life an aromatic taste. I got a master degree in political science from the American University of Beirut. Mahatma Gandhi is the only politician I follow and respect. Gamal Abd Nasir is the only Arab leader I admire. Rabindranath Tagore is my spiritual master. His poetry, writings, music, and universal thought is a real fountain for my spiritual uplifting. Chief Seattle’s “Message To the Modern World” broadened my views and deepened my interrelationships with Mother Nature and the GREAT SPIRIT. John Lennon is my daily friend. I recognize his song “Imagine” as my national anthem. I am a fan of Yoko Ono; I appreciate what she gave to the “whole world” through her love to John. I believe that the cosmic law is the only law that any creature must follow in order to understand the simple truth of life and death: that is another form of existence.
