Day 5 #AtoZchallenge
Day 6 #Napowrimo
when you and i meander in our journey
i wish we’d be together
yes, we are there side by side
but i can see that you are not present
shoulder to shoulder we lie
i check the moon and you the phone
.......rest of the poem has been removed to facilitate for future submission. Thank you for visiting.
I just finished reading (yesterday evening) "Strangers" by Nazik Al-Malaika, an Iraqi poet and the the line “Our silence is the echo of a frightening warning” caught my attention. Since this was fresh in my mind, I took that as my prompt and starting point. The Arabic is not from the poem though, I first wrote "all is well" and then thought to add the translation.
