Dedicated to my niece Noura

It was a Monday September ten 2007
When Noura gave me this feeling of being in heaven
Her mother phoned me saying:
“Charlotte is babysitting Noura but Noura is crying!”
A taxi took me to Noura’s place
Her cry was strong with an angry face
Charlotte was holding her tight
Trying to calm to end her fight.
Noura was turning her angry eyes
Full of tears with a complete disguise
Searching for dad searching for mom
Her cry was dinging just like a drum
As soon as she saw me she calmed down
I was so happy I was in town
Jumping to me her hug was far more than tender
Beyond glory beyond splendor
Kissing my cheeks, licking my neck
Noura paid me the magical check!
The check a loving aunt is fairly paid
By “Mother Nature” given an excellent grade
As soon as her mom appeared
A river of love in Noura’s eyes emerged
A breast feeding feast started at once
Noura never give a chance
To be abandoned to remain alone
Was her family really gone?!
Searching for a loving heart she was indeed
A loving heart every child does need
My feelings were uplifted by this experience
I was highly touched with Noura’s kindness
She proved to be a strong child
Fighting for her rights shouting so wild
At the same time I was so sad
To see Noura this much not glad
She is the dearest to my heart
She is the closest to my mind
Noura be happy never cry again
A loving family we will remain.

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.

goats ate all the flowers before chased by farm girls all the little rumps flee so pleasant over the grass bees in the clover formal in their golden dresses get their stockings dirty smelling like sneezes there’s a raccoon by
