A thunder storm



It was a windy evening today,
and then, there was the sudden white glowing flash of light,
the loud thunder seconds after,
the sound of rain drops pouring from the sky,
and when I smelled that familiar earth smell
deep memories were stirred,
pictures....ghosts.....and mixed feelings.
And I felt like chocking....
Thunder storms have a place always in my heart.

شو نفع العاصفة إذا ما كسّرِت وصرّخِت وخبّطت عالشبابيك؟
وشو نفعها إذا ما حبست الشمس ورجعت حررتها من جديد؟
شو نفعها إذا ما عم تتدفا عحطب شي ذكرى؟
مش حلو تبرد لحالك، بدون فكرة، أو صورة، أو حدا :)

Eve,
we don't choose when the storms come...do we?
When memories come, it's not a picture I have....there are alot of pictures.
But...ma fi hada..."I hear Fairouz singing...ma fi hada...la tendahi..."
