Leeuwarden Poem by Naji Almurisi


We were there…
Our souls and our heart
And the night
And your pretty eyes
And some memories
There!
In the green city,
Leeuwarden*
The gate of new love
Your name is secret of
An immigrant sparrow
Adoring the voyaged love
Towards shores flocks
And the beauty
Drawing in your face
Letter of imagination
And premonitions of miracles
In you
All borders were felled
And the yearning approximated
And hope of long distances was folded
When warmth of the east hugged the coldness of winter
And the souls met
And birds of the city were reddened of shyness
at the meeting
Do you know why the winter is sad in my heart?
Do you know why the sky is calling my imagination?
Do you know why the moon is crying on me?
Do you know why the birds and flowers are asking about me?
Because you are far of me and I am far of you
Leeuwarden
My warm kiss
My lost dream
Warmth of homesickness
Glint of air
And tears stayed
On my blue shirt
And the sea was sinking and sinking
In the echo of sad gull
Leeuwarden is a valuable world...

*Leeuwarden: a nice city in Holland
