Odes Immigrate to You ( قَصاَئد تُهَاجِرُ إِلَيْكِ) / Poem by Munir Mezyed 

Poem by Munir Mezyed 


Odes Immigrate to You


• She completely immerses me in the tales of cherry and lemon
Her eyes set the immigration on fire
And poems seep out of her wings of agate.…


• Be a butterfly
Even for a while
And teach me how to perform the rituals of fire…

• Sweet is the Fire
That performs its ablution with the sins of Holy Desire
And heals the wounds of the ode….


• I see a dream in the eyes of rain
Singing to a fire that extinguishes the fires

قَصاَئد تُهَاجِرُ إِلَيْكِ

منير مزيد


تُغْرِقُني دَومًا فِي حِكَايَات الكَرَزِ وَاللَّيْمُونِ
لَهَا عَيْنَانِ تُضْرِمُ بِهِمَا النَّارَ فِي الْخَيَال
وَأَجْنِحَةٌ مِنْ عَقِيقٍ تَتَقَطَّرُ مِنهَا القَصائدُ


كُونِي فَرَاشَة
حَتَّى لَوْ للَّحْظَةٍ
وَعَلِّمينِي إقامَةَ طُقُوس النَّارِ


عَذْبَةٌ هِيَ النَّارُ =
الَّتِي تَتَوَضَّأُ بِآثَامِ الرَّغْبَةِ الْمُقَدَّسَةِ
وَتُدَاوِي جُرُوحَ الْقَصِيدَةِ


إِنِّي أَرَىٰ حُلْمًا فِي عُيُونِ المَطَرِ
يُغَنِّي لــ نَارٍ تُطْفِئُ النِّيرَان
