Whirl, seek and discover

Matter and spirit
Noisy and quiet
A timeless circle
Magnificent miracle
Of life and death
Poverty and wealth
A world designed
Just to remind
You to live in harmony
A peaceful ceremony
A fruit from a tree
With a seed to be
Falling on the ground
With a perfect sound
New trees are born
Old trees are gone
Baby trees extend
As the laws demand
The same with you
With humans too
You were babies first
Then youth and adults exist
To give birth to new born
Where elders return
From the spirit world
Back to the ground
Path continuation
A joyful trip
In peace you step
New beginning
Drops in the river
Flowing forever
From universe to another
Whirl, seek and discover

An original poem in English by Nada Amine Awar

Nada Amine Awar's picture

I am a female poet, and a writer in Arabic and English. I am also an independent environmental awareness specialist and activist since 1992 when I assisted Dr. Mohammad Khaowli who was the chairman of Geology department in the American University of Beirut to collect signatures for the petition that was submitted to the UN so that the first UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) could be held between 3 June and 14 June 1992 in Rio.., Fourth of January, 1957 I was born in Quarnayel, Lebanon. Being an only daughter among three sons, gave my whole life an aromatic taste., I got a master degree in political science from the American University of Beirut. Mahatma Gandhi is the only politician I follow and respect. Gamal Abd Nasir is the only Arab leader I admire., Rabindranath Tagore is my spiritual master. His poetry, writings, music, and universal thought is a real fountain for my spiritual uplifting., Chief Seattle’s “Message To the Modern World” broadened my views and deepened my interrelationships with Mother Nature and the GREAT SPIRIT., John Lennon is my daily friend. I recognize his song “Imagine” as my national anthem., I am a fan of Yoko Ono; I appreciate what she gave to the “whole world” through her love to John., I believe that the cosmic law is the only law that any creature must follow in order to understand the simple truth of life and death: that is another form of existence.
