Mermaid a poem by M.T. Al-Mansouri, Ph.D.

 

Mermaid

Mermaid is the light of under darkness places.

Pain, wounds and forgetfulness.

As though roses and spring are related.

As though rice and saffron are related.

As though the bride and bride dresses are related.

As though fields and orchards are related.

It is a tale of…

حورية البحر

حورية البحر

حورية البحر هي نورية البر والمكان.

الألم والجراح والنسيان.

الورد وشهر نيسان.

الأرز والزعفران.

العرئيس والفستان.

والحقول والبستان.

أنها حكاية أيام زمان.

حورية البحر وشواطئ البحار البعيدة.

أنها أيام سعيدة ومجيدة.

فتفاءلوا بالخير تجدوه ياأبناء…

The washing of sins a poem by M.T. Al-Mansouri, Ph.D.

The washing of sins

 

The washing of sins, if it is by pilgrimage to Mecca or by diving in the Indian Ganges River or by visiting the Vatican.

All are holy places, and sins are part of human experience of divinity. Divinity brings holiness consciousness. It is the unseen policing…did you know how heavy sin…

غسل الخطايا

غسل الخطايا

غسل الخطايا اكان بالحج الى مكة المكرمة أو بالغطس في نهر الغانج الهندي أو بزيارة الفاتيكان.

كلها اماكن مقدسة, والخطايا انسانية.

غسل الخطايا وغسل الدماغ سوى كانت في المؤسسة الدنية أو في المدرسة.

غسل الخطايا سوى كانت في المعمل الطبي أو في دار الهندسة.

Daydreams and night dreams a poem by M.T. Al-Mansouri, PH.D.

Daydreams and night dreams

 

Dreams abounded in the early morning at the dawn of a new day.

The emergence of the Corona pandemic was the mimicry of the feared flu pandemic.

Night dreams have engaged the cowardly feared hostile assaults of the environment.

It's like a Hollywood movie bringing…

أحلام اليقظة واحلام المنام

أحلام اليقظة واحلام المنام

كثرت الاحلام في الصباح الباكر وفي المنام.

من قبل ظهور جائحة كرونا وجائحة أنفلونزا الزكام.

أحلام الليالي رغم العداء والاعتداء الجبان.

أنها كفيلم هوليودي من قديم الزمان.

أحلام حيث لا حدود للزمان والمكان.

أحلام بجوار…

Gas and sulfur a poem by M.T. Al-Mansouri, Ph.D.

Gas and sulfur

Gas and sulfur, what demons are they?

They take wealth from many countries and suffocate the clean air.

And they bring countries to their knees, as environmental degradation becomes obvious.

Their children, cousins, and money flee to the Gulf or the strait.

They killed ozone at the edge of the atmosphere.

They have no friend or companion left.

After all their pictures were displayed over narrow streets, they…

غاز وكبريت

غاز وكبريت

غاز وكبريت يالهُ من شيطان عفريت.

لقد استحوذ على المال والماء والدقيق.

واوصل البلد الى حافة الطريق الضيق.

وهرب أولاده وابناء عمومته والاموال الى الخليج والمضيق.

وقتل في حافة الطريق.

فلم يبق له أي صديق أو رفيق.

بعد أن كانت صوره في كل الزقازيق.

وبعد أن استحوذ هو واعوانه على العسل…

Behind the fences a poem by M.T. Al-Mansouri, Ph.D.

Behind the fences

 

Behind the walls are hidden rivers and seas of secrets.

And the secrets are varied in making judgment by their fate.

Behind the fences are leaves: ripe to fall, ready to fall and yellowish or beautifully red.

Tweeting birds and chirping sparrows young defy the old.

Behind…

Nuggets in Love a poem by M.T. Al-Mansouri, PH.D.

 

Nuggets in Love

 

I loved you, my love, and your absence means void.

You have possessed my soul and the given me hope to see each other like new roses.

Your spectrum radiate in my bosom and your smile kills all the germs in my heart or head forever.

And on the fire of your love I…

Bubbles in the cup a poem by M.T. Al-Mansouri, Ph.D.

Bubbles in the cup

 

Pops in the cup and conquests of the vast are surmountable narratives of the splendid universe in the morning.

Islands relativity to beaches, as the stars of the universe, threaten with painful twinkles in the sustained wounds.

Bubbles in the cup with evidence of evaporated water never…

The Sun and the Sea a poem by M.T. Al-Mansouri, Ph.D.

The Sun and the Sea

 

The sun sailed in the fog and became like a wave anchored in the great beaches.

The sun sailed in the darkness and the boy cried over the lost biography of the free honorable ones. It was a premonition of the dangers ahead.

It was restless, urban in nature and the morning breezes of…

شذرات في الحب

شذرات في الحب

أحببتك ياحبببي وطال الغياب.

ملكت روحي وطال العذاب.

طيفك هو حبي وعشقي للأبد.

وعلى نار حبك همست احبك.

والدموع على الخد تجري, ياما أنت حبيبي.

روحك سر حياتي والبقاء.

أني أعشقك ياحبيبي…

فقعات في الكأس تبخر الماء والبنزين وأشتعال الغازات.

الشمس والبحر

الشمس والبحر

أبحرت الشمس في الضباب وصارت كموجة ترسو في الشواطئ العظام.

أبحرت الشمس في الظلام فبكاء الغلام على سيرة الاحرار الكرام.

انه ضيق الصدر وضيق المدن ونسيم الصباح.

فهل ترئ ياصديقي حلً لهذه المشاكل العضال!

الشمس وسيرة الاحرار والعبيد وذوبان الجليد.

فأه من الشمس والنجوم والقمر.

Crocodile Tears a poem by M.T. Al-Mansouri,Ph.D.

Crocodile tears are wounds and feelings of hypocrites.

Palm forests, the Sadr forests, nature and mosques are the historical sites.

Searching for words in encyclopaedias and dictionaries may help in identifying the consequences of ignorance of deliberate hate for…
