On Mothers Day!

Aziz Isa Elkun

All humans have a mother
But all mothers’ fates are different
If you can:
give a bunch of roses on Mothers Day
give her a call on Sunday
visit her often and be with her on Christmas day
So I can say
How lucky you are!

Mother,
Everyone’s mother is an angel …
Mother lives in the heart of a child forever
You are everything for a child
So you are the same for every child
The world will end
Without loving mothers!

Witness to nature

Aziz Isa Elkun

If I could pretend tonight

I was stargazing at the winter sky

I was standing alone on the shore

and my lonely shadow followed me

under the glowing moonlight.

Separation makes me homesick
this is human nature
when I seek a remedy for my sadness
the stars twinkle back half closing their eyes
I stand far away from them
but I know my fate lies with the moon
I see the foolishness of the borders we make
when I watch the freedom of the moon’s movement.

Then I see an amazing view
there is a place before my eyes
where everything in nature embraces
all melting into one,
hottest among them is the sun,
it boils, effervescent, and sinks into the dusk.
