Ibrahim Ibn Salma Poems
Walking down the alley, Glimpsing of the passerby; the Stranger that looks like Me.
Jellyfish Graceful in their dance, As they whirl oceans,
A time we spent Near your lower hills, Your stones greeted us
Together We play music, No need for instruments,
When our lips melt Through the conversation Our night, When our sails are Followed by the shining stars
A dimly lit beam hovered, Confounded to why It lost its glow,
In singles or groups we Always existed, You made us, So that
Resistance Identity lost,
Dreams What is missing during the days Can be retrieved during the nights,
Time Time may play its game, Love may change its place,
My heart - do not ask me Where love is, It may have been a river of compassion, and it dried. It may have been a castle of imagination, and it collapsed.
Goddess spoke through her, God joined the conversation, Refused to be imprisoned in Wifeliness, housework, slavery,
A Place To Be
We often search around For a garden of roses and flowers, A scene to enjoy, a moment to cherish, A place to be.
I sought freedom, I sought love I delved into the unknown, into the void. Blind so I was, Darkness surrounded me.
paint the sky
with my branches,
I fortify the soil with
my roots, I fill the air
with oxygen, for a million
years I have given you the reason
and the resources to exist,
my branches never kill One another,
