Before the Joy

My words are no longer charcoal
as they were before
when in the heat of the glow
they had become black

now they move with the softness of hope

and at the dawn of beauty
they open their eyes
already adorning themselves
for the eternal journey.

HUSSEIN HABASCH, Kurdistan (Syria), 1948
