Within your glance

Dedicated to my nice Hiba Awar

The Milky Way
Shouted hurray!!!
The games of life
I see you play

Let music dance
Within your glance
Dive beyond my face
With a kind embrace

Capture the air
Move everywhere
Near, far and dear
Just have no fear

You come you go
With love you grow
Let’s hug the world
With a peaceful cloud

Singing aloud
I am so proud
My heart beats are
Congruent with a star

Sparkling in your looks
To open the locks
To show your within
Circulates to spin

A sustainable cloth
Immune from the moth
Frustration free
A life to be

Grant with no request
Get hold of all the best
Thrill nights and days
Enjoy always

All you have to do
With no doubts to grow
What you are is luminous
Kind, wit, and courageous

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.
