finished reading


This anthology spoke to me.  Some of the poems challenged me, were outside of my knowledge base.  But each of them stirred me.  My favorite is "Out Of The Mist" by Lahab Assef Al-Jundi, but there were several I want to re-read.  








Out Of The Mist
Lahab Assef Al-Jundi

Out of the mist of a million probable worlds,
Out of the dizziness of a long dream,

Like a bee that found its nectar in a field of stones,
Or a poet who heard his heart's music amid cries of war,

The precision was that of divine intervention,
Art born of deeper beauty,

And just like birds find home after a long winter,
And a smile finds its way to a melancholy face,

I found you.
