Ibrahim Ibn Salma

Mont Taba - Poem by Ibrahim Ibn Salma

A time we spent
Near your lower hills,

Your stones greeted us
And spoke to us of love,

Out of your rocks
We built a temple
To guard our union -
A child-like encounter
We never outgrew,

We played the game of innocence
On your chilled top,
Our embraced souls
Shrouded by your snowflakes,
Never shivered, never quivered,
Never wanted to part,

A game we thought we would
Never stop playing.
