Intertwined!Poetry by Nahida Izzat Salem-News.com
The more deeply you look at the visible... The closer you become to seeing the invisible
(LONDON) - How could one be spiritual
Without being saturated in love?
How would one experience love
Without being spiritual to the core?
It’s not possible
When you love
You are bursting with curiosity
Teeming with awe and wonder
You see splendour all around
In the most unlikely places
And the most unnoticeable things
This beautiful feeling
Defying all laws
Challenging all notions
Transcending all boundaries
Refusing to be defined
Making life worthwhile living
Gives you a glimpse into the infinite
The more deeply you look at the visible
The closer you become to seeing the invisible
As you board the boat of love
You embrace your spiritual-self
Embarking on a magical journey
Floating… following your destiny
Spirituality and love are inseparable… intertwined
“To smile when confronted with the most severe oppression, is an act of Resistance rooted in unparalleled beauty.”
~ Jonathan Azaziah"And I, a Palestinian from occupied Palestine, refuse to share
my homeland with Zionist colonizers"
~ Reham Alhelsi
"Facts" do NOT need laws to enforce, validate or defend them, what they require is research to examine their narrative and correct it for better accuracy and understanding.
“When a man who is honestly mistaken hears the truth, he will either cease being mistaken, or cease being honest.”
Special thanks to Uprooted Palestinians
Nahida Izzat is a Jerusalem-born Palestinian refugee who has lived in exile for over forty two years, after being forced to leave her homeland at the tender age of seven in 1967, during the six-day war. She has a degree in mathematics, but art is one of her favorite pastimes. She loves hand-made things and so makes dolls, cards, and most of her own clothes. She also writes poetry, participates in written dialogues and believes in building bridges, not walls.
She started writing when her friends insisted she should write about her memories, experiences and feelings as a Palestinian.When she did it all came out sounding—she was told—like poetry! So she self-published two books: I Believe in Miracles, and Palestine the True Story.
Her dream is to return back home to a free and liberated Palestine.
