Monarch

Reigning monarch

Paints over blue

Clusters of royal gold

and orange brew

mixtures of  life

start over new.

Scribbling of an old spinster

Children laugh too loud

The air is musty outside 

New cookies make me gassy 

My knees ache

I think I have a heart murmur…

That container would be great for…

The neighbors dog barks all night

I should get a cat to keep me company…

On second thought I don’t like cats…

Oh here we go again…

I hate when the sun comes up so suddenly on you, 

seems sneaky somehow…
 

Saying of the Imam Ali

قال الامام علي :لا تثق في شمس الشتاء…

و لا في قلب النساء…

و لا في الدنيا فإنها دار الفناء…

ولكن ثق في اخ لم تلده لك أمك …

ولكن ولدته لك الأيام…

فإذا كان اجمل ما في الورد الرحيق…

فإن اجمل ما في الدنيا الصديق…

Do not trust in the winter sun …

And not in the heart of women …

And not in this world , for it is the dwelling of dissolution …

But trust in a brother not born from your mother …

But who bore him the days …

Because If what is most beautiful in the rose is the  nectar …

Then what is most beautiful in this world is a friend …
