    غادة السمان
    “لا يزال التحديق في عينيك
    يشبه متعة إحصاء النجوم في ليلة صحراوية...
    ولا يزال اسمك
    الاسم الوحيد "الممنوع من الصرف" في حياتي..
    لا تزال في خاطري
    نهراً نهراً.. وكهفاً كهفاً.. وجرحاً جرحاً...
    وأذكر جيداً رائحة كفك..
    خشب الأبنوس والبهارات العربية الغامضة
    تفوح في ليل السفن المبحرة إلى المجهول...
    ... لو لم تكن حنجرتي مغارة جليد،
    لقلت لك ...شيئاً عذباً
    يشبه كلمة "أحبك”
    غادة السمان

    when I describe the world

    of me so swiftly dying”

    Jalaluddin Rumi
    “I want to see you.

    Know your voice.

    Recognize you when you
    first come 'round the corner.

    Sense your scent when I come
    into a room you've just left.

    Know the lift of your heel,
    the glide of your foot.

    Become familiar with the way
    you purse your lips
    then let them part,
    just the slightest bit,
    when I lean in to your space
    and kiss you.

    I want to know the joy
    of how you whisper
    Jalaluddin Rumi
