childhood tanka

childhood flavour is
apple pie and happiness
unspoiled strong scent of
cinnamon and brown sugar
and Heaven in mother’s smile


my blue man

there he was, my blue man
crossing his desert of emptiness
after a century’s solitude

I remember his imense eyes
and the marks life has carved on his face
just like wind turns stones into sand

strangest light sparkled under his long eyelashes
as he continued his journey
breathing my liquid soul

Ishtar – Comme Toi / As You Are

This is a cover of French singer Jean-Jacques Goldman. He is telling to his daughter while she is sleeping the story of a young girl that was deported to an extermination camp during WWII in Eastern Europe. Goldman’s family was from Germany and Poland, being Jewish they had to leave the country and settled in France.

“She had clear eyes and a velvet robe
Besides her mother and the family around her
She stood while she’s a little distracted in the soft sunlight at the end of the day
The picture is not so good, but one can see
The happiness itself there and the evening’s softness
She loved music, especially Schumann and then Mozart

As you do as you do as you do

She went to the school from the village below
She learned the books she learned the laws
She sang about frogs and princesses that sleep in the woods
She loved her doll she loved her friends
Especially Ruth and Anna but especially Jeremiah
Maybe they marry one day in Warsaw

As you are as you are as you are
As you are as you are as you are
As you are while I am looking down at you
As you are while sleeping and dreaming of whom?
As you are as you are as you are

(Arabic)
Days passed by in the innocence time
In it was her sole love

Her name was Sarah she was not even eight years old
Her life was soft dreams and white clouds
But other people had decided otherwise

As you are as you are as you are
As you are as you are as you are
As you are while I am looking down at you
As you are while sleeping and dreaming of whom?
As you are as you are as you are

She had your clear eyes and she was your age
She was a little girl without history and very wise
But she was not born like you here and now …”

The Thirsty Crow Story

One hot day, a thirsty crow flew all over the fields looking for water. For a long time, he could not find any. He felt very weak, almost lost all hope. Suddenly, he saw a water jug below the tree. He flew straight down to see if there was any water inside. Yes, he could see some water inside the jug!

The crow tried to push his head into the jug. Sadly, he found that the neck of the jug was too narrow. Then he tried to push the jug to tilt for the water to flow out but the jug was too heavy.

The crow thought hard for a while. Then looking around her, he saw some pebbles. he suddenly had a good idea. he started picking up the pebbles one by one, dropping each into the jug. As more and more pebbles filled the jug, the water level kept rising. Soon it was high enough for the crow to drink. His plan had worked!
