أعاني من الأرق لأن نار وجهك تسكن أحلامي.

~

It is her fragrance
that sets the garden
into motion,
she walks in
and everything is alive
with light and love.

This poetry
a trail of leaves
that I follow
deep into the forests
of my childhood,
into the deserts
and high mountains
of my longing,
reminding me of who I am
and who I want to be.

~

Wrapped up in his arms
she unwinds her day,
her breath and thoughts slowing down,
his embrace filling her
with safety and warmth,
as the world outside fades
and a single star shines
from the quietness of their belonging.

~

الحب هو وليد اللحظة، أما الصداقة فتبنى.

Love is the child of the moment, but friendship is built through time.

Haibun # 5

As I sip my morning tea, the autumn sun outside, like a warm, tender wave falls over the trees in the garden. Beside me, on the desk, a book calls to be read, as though it were the tender eyes of a woman I love, inviting me to delve into them. My heart is filled with a strange stillness and calm as leaves falls all around.

Autumn morning…
in all beginnings is sown
the seed of their end

Haiku # 529

Ecoutant le silence
et la chandelle qui tremble
au souffle des étoiles

~

Fuyant dans les herbes
le haïku du poète mort
un jour d’automne

~

Ma vie s’écroule…
il ne reste de moi
que ce poème d’amour

~

Fleur dans les herbes…
poète mort un automne
foudroyé d’amour

~

Brume dans les feuilles jaune…
de la vie il ne reste
que l’éternité d’amour
