Unborn Ghazal

The arch in your back showed curved ambitions being born

Similar to the sound of an innocent cry from a new born

 

You painted a crippled flower on a clean slate

but it grew with the sunrise and that’s when it was born

 

Plunged deep into the waters that cleansed you

You emerged from the ground again new born

 

Washed of your sins and bad deeds that tormented

As clean as the breeze that is autumn born

 

Lakes and rivers driven by the fire in the wind

and the velvet sky where the moon is born

 

The chestnut brown in your hair grown stale

Still you blossom like time which is born

 

in the nakedness of the earth,

bare and exposed like a new born

 

Your heart unhampered and love so rich

Just like the heart of virgin un-born
