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 …

Desperation

I miss you today…The colors today are dull

The sun is dimmed

The place where you used to be

Is dark and cold;

The days are long and lonely without you

When will you come back to me? 

How long do I have to suffer?

Return back the brightness to my days 

Steal away the darkness that haunts my nights

Fill up this ugly silence with your beautiful laughs

I miss you today

Please…

Just come back……
