Be a Rose

Wash tears and fears with a glowing smile
Extend your hands, embrace a face.

Rose

(LONDON) -

Giving fragrance when caressed

Held up softly, crushed or destroyed

In abundance it fills the ambiance

Never withhold what it contains

Every person you come by

Paths have crossed, wisdom unknown

Don’t let it pass or go to waste

 

Without a whisper, heart to heart

Spiky shells hide weary souls

 

Fragile and wounded throbbing in pain

Just like you, carries own load

 

Seeking retreat, hurting and cold

Wash tears and fears with a glowing smile

 

Extend your hands, embrace a face

 

Nabi Saleh, West Bank, 10.2.2013

Reassure with a tender gaze

 

Delight as you leave your scent behind

Brush your surrounds with your heavenly soul

 

Paint grey days with rainbows hues

lilac and mauve, violet and green

 

Red and amber, pink and blue

Scatter your pearls for all who seek

 

Sparkles of joy, boundless sublime

 

523194_357469857669165_532547607_n

Awaken seeds of love, dormant inside

 

Watch barren hearts tremble and bloom


Be a rose

“To smile when confronted with the most severe oppression, is an act of Resistance rooted in unparalleled beauty.”

~ Jonathan Azaziah

"And I, a Palestinian from occupied Palestine, refuse to share
my homeland with Zionist colonizers"

 ~ Reham Alhelsi


"Facts" do NOT need laws to enforce, validate or defend them, what they require is research to examine their narrative and correct it for better accuracy and understanding.

“When a man who is honestly mistaken hears the truth, he will either cease being mistaken, or cease being honest.”

Special thanks to Uprooted Palestinians

_________________________________

Nahida Izzat is a Jerusalem-born Palestinian refugee who has lived in exile for over forty two years, after being forced to leave her homeland at the tender age of seven in 1967, during the six-day war. She has a degree in mathematics, but art is one of her favorite pastimes. She loves hand-made things and so makes dolls, cards, and most of her own clothes. She also writes poetry, participates in written dialogues and believes in building bridges, not walls.

She started writing when her friends insisted she should write about her memories, experiences and feelings as a Palestinian.When she did it all came out sounding—she was told—like poetry! So she self-published two books: I Believe in Miracles, and Palestine the True Story.

Her dream is to return back home to a free and liberated Palestine.

If you like poetry and are intrigued by the notion of learning more about Palestine, you can visit Nahida's blog Poetry for Palestine for more of her writings; prose, poems, letters and dialogues.
