Dreamy Shadow & Eagle Sparrow - Poem by nadia abduljabbar

I saw him
A bird;
Small and thin,
He spoke,
And I felt
The giant within;
An eagle in
A sparrow skin.
I flew with him,
According to his whim,
To his cave;
A sea with out a wave,
To his imaginary kingdom,
To his rocky nest,
To his romantic palace,
That is not effete yet;
A land of beauty and rosy smell,
We read a book;
A starry one,
We talked a lot
About everything,
Except the way we felt.
He then drew,
And led me through
The land of his dreams,
And I was generously fed
From his small trees,
Some fresh fruits
Which taste as Manna or honey dew,
And nothing else
Want I or crave
He softly picked,
From a thorny bush,
Some flowers,
A gift,
While birds were
Singing high,
And nothing else
Heard I;
Nature seemed hush,
But from the drum,
In my chest,
The rose took I
With fingers numb,
The moon could
Show its shy,
Thin face
In the sky
Hence, time stood still.
