Be Yourself.. (En/Ar)

Liars are the ones who tell you that you’re a flower, for you’re not a flower at all..

You’re like the gardener who keeps watering all the flowers only to see the whole world covered in masses of violets..

You’re like the smell of a gentle rain in mid-December.

You’re like a kite in the sky that flies fervently to spark a bright glow in our souls..

You’re like a sun in the hearts, whose absence only magnifies its presence..

Your eyes are of unmatched beauty that makes the whole world brim with glamour.

So just be yourself because you’re amazing just the way you are..

كوني أنتِ…

كاذبٌ من اخبركِ بأنكِ زهرة، فأنتِ لستِ بزهرةً مُطلقًا..

أنتِ ذلك البُستانيّ الذي يسقي جميع الزهور، حتى صارَ يرى العالم كلّه من حولِه باقاتٍ من أزهار البنفسَج..

أنتِ رائحةُ المطر الهادئ في منتصف ديسمبر..

أنتِ تلكَ الطائرةُ الورقية في السماء، تحلقين بشغفٍ لتبعث في نفوسنا توهجًا مضيئًا..

أنتِ تلك الشمس في القلوب، فما يزدادكِ الغياب سوى حضورًا..

خُلِقت عينيكِ لتحمل جمالاً منقطع النظير، فأصبح العالمُ كلّه يضُجّ بالجمال..

رائعة كما أنتِ.. يكفي فقط أن تكوني أنتِ….

      • A pleasure, Dina. Pleased you like , as the reason I write is to share.

        If I can put a smile on someone ones face, then I’m very happy .
        Thanks for the follows, though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera* in the “real world”, rather than in cyberspace!)

        * By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

        (get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

        * or so I was often called by my “my techno-geek” friend, Bill (“the gonk”)

        “total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time)

        Who says men can’t multi-task!

        Men…Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em!

        “You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm.”

        – Colette (nice name for a girl, btw)

        All the best with your blog and kind regards, Dina

        “early bird ” (very)* craig

        Best wishes from the First City to see the light

      • If you knew me, you wouldn’t trust me holding a phone, let alone a video camera (just ask my son visiting from Melbourne and organizing med)… but a pleasure, Dina. Have a great day
