Springtime in the Middle East



Pretty flowers bloom, sunbirds and robins sing
feel the warmth that the blue sky brings ,
butterflies and bees flutter around
green grasses and shrubs abound

Days are bright, nights are dry
little twinkling stars in the sky ,
hopes are high , forget the past
let there be faith that lasts

Sandstorms coming, sand dunes shaping
camels prancing, Bedouin men hunting ,
beautiful oasis in the golden desert
another day, another dream and then, rebirth

Stargazer lillies and dates palm trees
dancing, swaying  to the rhythm of the breeze
whispering secrets and enchanting songs
Arabian desert, here is where you belong

Shadows of majestic villages and palaces
Hues of beige, dusk and golden shades ,
A starry dream and images of far away places
of kings and princesses found in ancient tales


Ebony and ivory clad couples trotting down the street
happy and gay under the blistering heat,
A variety of expats from places far and wide
living in peace and harmony and no selfish pride.

Imam chants and prayer calls
Of our white-thobed brothers and all ,
from early sunrises to late sundowns
beckoning, echoing the whole cities and towns

New spring, new beginnings
like a newborn babe and a young woman’s wedding,
this one is always better than the last
hope floats and season changes fast

Yesterdays cold and wintry months gone,
A brand new chapter of life has just began,
Season of love and faith, here and beyond
In the land of far away kingdoms and desert sands.
