Poetry, 2003 (c)

by Sarah Badr, 2003
100 x 75 cm matte canvas print


The ray of light
in the silent storm
breaking the cycle:
thunder, lightning,
then splendor

But light has forgotten
this scorched earth
once kissed,
once wrapped
by the iridal bow

Now my kaleidoscope of colours
has somehow gone missing
into the darkness beyond
that little open window

And then you closed it,
turned around
walked away,
the light was all gone
and I was left with nothing.
