Right by the blue sea

Do you remember when the sea was blue? Blue as its sky? Or as that shirt that you once wore and never again? Why is blue a cold color? just like our seas, and our mountains. Just like our fantasies and desires. I still remember that day, when the sea was blue, and the breeze […]

إتحاد الجبال

الجبال – مع بعضها تتّحد لتكوّن جيشاً عظيماً يحارب هجوم الانسان على طبيعة الله.  صخور الجبال – صلبة، قويّة، شرسة، ليست مسامحة للتهوّرات العشوائية بدون مبرر. أشجّار الجبال – منتصبة، خضراء، تقف نبيلة، تحمي الغابة من نار الحرب.بقاء هذه الاشجّار أهم عنصر لإتحاد الجبال. تشرين أول 2018

A post for October

October. I have to dedicate some words for October. Or perhaps I should name my first born October. October is my month, and somehow it’s one of my favorite months. I feel October in my bones.

Rise, my dear.

My dear,Rise! You’ll be alright. All of this — all will be gone. Your agony, anguish, and anger will all — be gone. Go to sleep. In your sleep you’ll find beauty, will find love, and escapades – from your dark real mind. And when the sun rises, you’ll rise too. Strong and great. Now, […]

A writer, a dream

About ten years ago I decided that I want to become a writer. I was dreaming about becoming one of those best-selling authors that can live this exciting life of just spending time in solitude and write. I spent my late teen years (18 and 19) trying to write. I knew I lacked the language […]

It was part of the fantasy

“For some it wasn’t perfect, for others it was totally wrong, for me it was the fantasy …” It was seven years ago, when I was a child. I was naive, and I wanted to learn. I was eager and passionate, and I had no idea how to learn. I’d known I was a special […]
