The Voice of Winter

Winter, it raise its voice
Through its cold wind
Hiding the sun with the moistly cloud
Touching the sea, accumulating angry waves
The tide is rising
Forcing the waves to hit the shore
Then it halts the wind
Painting the sky in darkness
As the cloud foams heavily in rage
The sky blaze in thunder and lightening
Suddenly the living things of earth
Searching for shelter
The birds seek another refuge rather than the sky
On a final cry
Its rains and rains
Winter speaks so loudly

The Moon القمر

أتمنى أن أكون القمر

يسطعُ في جنحِ الظلام

مخترقاً العتمة بنورهِ الوضّاء

في عزلةٍ يبدو مبرقاً

إنعكاسُ أشعةٍ يفرض وجوده

يسبح بهدوءٍ في سماوات الكوكب

مع بزوغ الفجر، بسلامٍ وتأنٍ يتلاشى ويغيب

في وضح النهارلا سكنى له

غدا أثراً بعد عين

عجيبةٌ هي دورة القمر

نصــــــرة العــــــدوي

ترجمة/ شمســـــــة الحوسنـــــــي

This poem written in English about the moon, but was translated by a member of the Translation Group of the Sultan Qaboos University. I think it was published in book titled Within Myslef "the Willpower to Live Beyond Cancer"

I like the arabic , It reminds me of the full moon, someone told me when its full moon always try to write as that is the night for inspiration. How true is this I have not tried it yet

Destiny is Calling

A new destiny is calling

Just faraway from here

So take your new journey without hesitation and fear

Know that my love is endlessly near

For no life or death can separate us

Sometime the path is dark and unclear

Grip unto faith as God is every where

Waiting to hear your prayer

I know in the end you will find that comfort

Being under god's shelter

His Mercy and kindness in the only power

Be brave in exploring the after life journey

May great things awaits you

Don’t Whisper

Yearning for the past!
It shall not return
The past is bygone
We are here to live day by day
Can not live for yesterday
Don’t count what you have done
Think of what you can give for today
Never wait for payback
As you give, let it be forgotten
Even don’t whisper it to you heart

The most important rule about giving. Keep your good deeds to yourself. Don't announce to the whole world that you've donated $100,000 to your favorite charity or that you've helped save a child from a life-threatening disease.

If you really desire to give, do it secretly and in private. Some people would write "anonymous" rather than their own names when they've made a contribution. The universe smiles upon these individuals, and they will get their just rewards in due time.

Cluttered Leafs

تبعثرت أوراقي
اتركني أفنى
فان الفناء مكتوب عليَ

My leafs cluttered
Let me cease with time
I lost my home

Let the Smile

دع البسمة

دع البسمة أن تعيش هنا

دع الفرحة أن تنسج خيوطا في روحنا

فنحن سئمنا من البكاء

ولن ندع الحزن يأكل اي جزء منا

فلا شيء هنا يبكي سوانا

قد حان الوقت ليعلو فيها صوتنا من الفرح

ويتحرر من كل نبضة شجن

حان لأعيننا أن يضئن من الفرح

ويمحينا كل دمعة حزن

فنلامس الحياة بوجه مرح

لنغير لون روحنا الى بسمة أمل

نصرة العدوي

Let the Smile

Let this smile live here

Let this joy to net happiness in our soul

Nothing else cries except us

We are tired to shed these tears

Its just time for our voice to rise in joy

Freeing from any tune of regret

Let these eyes lit in bliss

Erasing the tears of sorrow

To touch this life with face of joy

Changing the color of soul into a color of hope

The Journey of Dying

The Journey of Dying
Those who we left behind
Standing facing the panel of life
Wonder which dimension is better to face
Living life or the journey of being dead
The unknown seem like staring into a dark shadow
We step into it with fear

To Live Until We Say Good-Bye is a book by Elisabeth Kubler-Roos a visual record on terminally ill patients and the way her counselling work bring them to accept death. As much she touch and give courage to them, her life was reflected and touched by those patients.
This book had touched me in so many ways. ....Great work
