    Once Iraqi dates are ripe at July

    A group of youth coming up to my deck
    Unloading my ship in a vast moorage
    I fall down recklessly to the salty beach
    Unknown headache I got much
    Many hours passed and I shall wait
    Seeing one slab as if it is scorched
    It looks like my soul neighing as a horse
    A flake of breeze refreshes me again
    As a series of thought it comes up
    And I am in the sixth decade of my age
    Near a barrel of petrol, I smoke
    I claim the victor as pending it will
    But my hope likely is a savage one
    In each moment, I would say, hi
    To the youth period which I lost
    Deltaic agony in my harp
    And the moon still watches as a thief
    Through the gaps of clouds it does dance
    Under its light, I read your litter
    Swarm of pigeons goes back and forth
    As they chant the melody of spring
    And the orange- twilight cover me up
    The water is salty firing my mouth
    It is as if a veil that covering your bosom
    At a midday of a hot summer
    Once Iraqi dates are ripe at July
    Tickling your cheek to be blush
    Painlessly over the thrones you trod
    Once you were barefoot going out
    While your face gazing as if bird
    Dreamy night as if I am drunk
    A flake of wind passed by my face
    Stirring up my emotions and I woke.
    My country is the Home of Honour And
    Without honour I haven't Home

    There is some lovely imagery in this.

    Good writing, i love the description of salt water, since you manage to use fire in a description of water.

    Thank you both to visit my page
    Of course any community or society has its unique categories pertaining to culture, for instants, the ripened Iraqi dates at July is a symbol referring to the complete friendship.
    2- Yes the salt water always it has a bitter taste and would be firing, this imagery may shed light on something really come in mistake.
    look to another imagery : and the moon still watches as a thief!
