Home is where the heart is
Across the oceans..
Thousands of miles away..

Sometimes when its about to rain
I glimpse the source of my pain
The infinite times I said 'I love you'
Aloud, in my secret or through my screams
The word 'love'  is an understatement
That's why poetry and Art
Just happen

sometimes
I close my eyes
to fall in love
with the way
I remember you

Abdulhamid AlAttar Oct 2016

In the end
         I couldn't
                just ignore
       how the sun
kissed her eyes

Spring morning
23 degrees
7:13 AM
heavenly breeze
a walk to work
smell of ochre trees
flowers
grass
wet dirt;
birds dancing
singing
cold sunshine
touching my skin
...
Goodmorning barista
primo decaf, please
the girl wiping the floor
smiles, good morning sir
...on the bench
eyes closed
inhale, listen , smile
weird pose
the moment freezes
a sip of coffee
plays back memories
...
beep, beep, beep
health watch:
2km 2053 steps
7:55 AM

When I taste memories in my coffee...
I put forgetfulness instead of sugar...

Abdulhamid AlAttar Aug 2016

I nightly whisper to stars
showing them my heart
they glitter
the moon overhears us
feels jealous
I keep on teasing him
till the night
washes out
