If I were another I would have belonged to the road,

neither you nor I would return. Awaken the guitar

and we might sense the unknown and the route that tempts

the traveler to test gravity. I am only

my steps, and you are both my compass and my chasm.

If I were another on the road, I would have

hidden my emotions in the suitcase, so my poem

would be of water, diaphanous, white,

abstract, and lightweight ... stronger than memory,

and weaker than dewdrops, and I would have said:

My identity is this expanse!

Palmyra (Arabic: تدمر Tadmor) was in ancient times an important city of central Syria, located in an oasis 215 km northeast of Damascus and 120 km southwest of the Euphrates. It has long been a vital caravan city for travellers crossing the Syrian desert and was known as the Bride of the Desert. The earliest documented reference to the city by its pre-Semitic name Tadmor, Tadmur or Tudmur, is recorded in Babylonian tablets found in Mari.


Though the ancient site fell into disuse after the 16th century, it is still known as Tadmor in Arabic, and there is a newer town next to the ruins of the same name. The Palmyrenes constructed a series of large-scale monuments containing funerary art such as limestone slabs with human busts representing the deceased........................

If I were tiny just like you,

I'd creep among the flowers too!

"I am a woman. No more and no less

I live my life as it is

thread by thread

and I spin my wool to wear, not

to complete Homer’s story, or his sun.

And I see what I see

as it is, in its shape,

though I stare every once

in a while in its shade

to sense the pulse of defeat,

and I write tomorrow

on yesterday’s sheets: there’s no sound

other than echo.

I love the necessary vagueness in

what a night traveler says to the absence

of birds over the slopes of speech

and above the roofs of villages

I am a woman, no more and no less..."

عودوا أنى كنتم غرباء كما أنتم

فقراء كما أنتم

يا أحبابي الموتى عودوا

حتى لو كنتم قد متم

صمتاً صمتاً من هذا الطارق أبواب الموتى

يا هذا الطارق من أنت

أيكون العالم

لم يبق لدينا ما نعطيه أعطيناه دمنا

أعطيناه حتى أعظمنا وجماجمنا

ومضينا مقهورين

لا نملك إلا بعض تراب من ماضي



يا هذا الطارق أبواب الموتى

ضوضائك تفزعنا

وتقض مضاجعنا

فارجع لا تفجعنا

لا تحرمنا النسيان

يا أحبابي الفقراء

يا أحبابي الغرباء

كنتم أبداً عظماء

يدعونا كي نرجع

دميت أيدينا أرجلنا

لكنا سوف نسير

ومياه النهر تسير

وشموس الأفق تسير

وتراب الأرض يسير

ونظل نسير نسير

Zabarjad Island, Red Sea. A tranquil island known only to divers and sailors. Named after a precious metal that was historically found only here due to its unique geology (Olivine, Topazos). The island is home to varieties of rare birds and the remote location makes its reefs out of reach to heavy handed fishers and divers.

If I were another on the road, I would not have looked

back, I would have said what one traveler said

to another: Stranger! awaken

the guitar more! Delay our tomorrow so our road

may extend and space may widen for us, and we may get rescued

from our story together: you are so much yourself ... and I am

so much other than myself right here before you!


From If I Were Another by Mahmoud Darwish


Taken at the same time as the previous shot but facing West with my back to the setting sun. Thanks all my Flickr friends for your kind comments and favs :-)
