The Presence

Poem No.: 30 النص العربي: لا يوجد

I open a door unto the Earth

and set ablaze the fire of presence,

in the clouds intersecting

or trailing one another,

in the ocean and its infatuated waves,

in the mountains and their forests,

and in the rocks,

creating for the pregnant nights

a homeland

in the ashes of the roots,

in the fields of songs,

in the thunder and thunderbolts,

and feeding to the fires

the mummies of the ages.

Selected and translated


Kamal Abu-Deeb
