My Mom......A prize winning poem

    In 1933, the great Sudanese poet Hamza Al Melik Tombol stood at the Nile beach in Argo, my home town, and wrote his masterpiece in Arabic(describing sunset in Argo) . In 2005, I stood in front of the remains of his house and I wrote this poetry(in English) to the memory of my mother. Fortunately, it is a prize winning poem with Qatar Education Ministry and was added to The English literature for the High School seniors!!

    My Mom

    Over the horizon into the west,
    the crimson sun sinks down.
    Trees invite birds to rest.
    Serenity looms over the Nile.
    Nature seduces a mind to test.

    The Adhan echoes, minarets shine.
    “Allah’s Way Is the Best.”
    The call awakens soul of mine,
    Glory and Greatness charm my chest
    Mercy, I quest, to all mankind

    Far, I gazed, into the West.
    Tempted I was to cross that line.
    Eager to shatter promises kept.
    Mom’s voice, “You are fine!
    Like a bird, take some rest!
    Patient be! Peace would shine.”

    I evoked the Prophet’s advice!
    How could I forget.... !!
    “Near her toes is my Paradise !”
    The whispers of the night quietly left
    when echoes of dawn brightly rise.
    Alone, I bide in the empty nest!

    Her angel face was weary and shy
    Eternal memories forever stay
    The river of tears raced dry
    Singing doves grieved all day!
    The mourning sun condoled the sky.

    Dear Mr. Ibrahim,
    You know, I was wondering around this website in the last few days trying to find some comfort in any
    written words -beside keeping myself busy- that can ease some of my emotional struggle after seeing
    tons of footage of suffering everywhere in Sudan…Finally, I came across this amazing piece of art that you wrote
    in memory of your mother… so beautiful and very touching poetry… and indeed, it deserves multiple winning prize
    not only the Qatar one..

    Thank you brother for this little therapy of the day :)

    Dear Jawahir Ibrahim
    Thank you very much for your encouraging comment. However, I do apologize for the delayed response, as I had been to the States for the last five days. I just came back to home sweet home: Calgary, Canada to find your beautiful words awaiting my return. It is really fantastic to find somebody who appreciates what you write.
    Thank you again and please keep us posted by your wonderful input. I noticed your Juba Arabic wanasa but unfortunately I do not master it. Though, I spent two years teachng at Juba University where I met some nice colleaques.
    My best regards.
    Ibrahim

    Thanks Jawahir ..... for getting my attention to Ustaza Asha comments. I am sorry I missed it ...!

    My dearest regards to Ustaza Asha.....I wish she can join the slow caravan. Nice people like her are in great demand here to sweeten the pie! I am sure she will be a valuable addition to the English Forum!

    Warm greetings to both of you from the cold nights of the Rocky Mountains.
