Treasure Island

sallam yassin

(05/06/1968 / Hargeisa, Somaliland)

Baghdad the home of man and his art


Oh Baghdad!
who will penetrate
This shroud of death
Shroud of dead

Is not fit
For your beautiful face
Face Of Babel princess
Oh queen of Euphrates
When Tigris Will come back to my heart
In charm with my dream
When peace could come
Home
Her home
Home of peace
The home of thousand
and one night
the home of man
And his art

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
