salt

Our dreams are adrift in the sea
some of it fall on the seaweeds and grass
taste them 
you can tell 
it's where our tears are going

Arabic

It is a shame not to know a language that sounds true poetry 
that words won't sound the same in a different language
so beautiful say it loud say it longer say it 
say it in Arabic
there is none like it 
I thank God for choosing a language 
on which to speak to him
one for him to hear 
a song that will reverberate
all throughout this planet
the planet of rocks and trees
