New Day With Diamonds - Poem by Najib Altawell

Diamonds on black velvet
Danced between the fingers
Bursting with brilliant light
In a summer
'Starry' night

Rahmanov classical music
Born gracefully
Out of a silver box
The hearts and
The minds

Crocodile decorated skin
Rest on a Persian carpet
Marking the entrance to
An arched bended passage
Half Darkened
Faintly Lighted
With lamps
On each side

Roses blouses shirts and bushes
Suddenly shine reflecting light
When everyone moves
Side by side
A little tight
As the place
Filled with

The lower part of the heavenly dome
Brushed with a touch of pale light
Signalling silently the approaching
Droplets dews on stems and
Moves down with birds
Singing Greeting Blessing and Telling
That a new day is
