Biography of Ghada Shahbender

Ghada Shahbender poet

Salam. Started writing recently. Appreciate your comments. I find the writing cathartic and am enjoying reading poetry by others. The site is my recluse - an oasis of tranquility on the net.

Friday Morning

A blank wall the ugly color of dust
Two drain pipes covered in pigeon droppings and rust
I roll down the shutters to keep Friday morning out
The humid air, the children who swear and the parents that shout.
Newspapers, a cigarette and a huge coffee cup
Heart pouring to Kika, waiting for my children to wake up.
Remembering the years when they came to my bed at dawn
Droopy eyes and toothless mouths open wide in a sweet breathed yawn.
They have grown up and I have aged.
