قالوا الدروز - Poem by
by مارون عبود

قالوا الدروز فقلت جيل معرق
العقل دين والوفاء الموثقُ
والصدق شرعتهم فإن عاهدتهم
بروا وإن نطقوا بأمر يصدقوا
خلق الأسود متى يمس حماهم
وسخاء حاتم طيء إن يطرقوا
تمت مروءتهم فإن ناديتهم
طاروا إليك عصائبا تتدفق
ربضوا بباب الشرق خير ضراغم
تحمي العرين فأين منه الأبلقُ

The Last Poem
by Kamal Nasser

Beloved, if perchance word of my death reaches you
As, alone, you fondle my only child
Eagerly awaiting my return,
Shed no tears in sorrow for me
For in my homeland
Life is degradation and wounds
And in my eyes the call of danger rings.
Beloved, if word of my death reaches you
And the lovers cry out:
The loyal one has departed, his visage gone forever,

الشكر أهديه إلى صبري خلف - Poem by خليل السك
by خليل السكاكيني

الشكر أهديه إلى صبري خلف
من بالمروءة والسماح قد اتصف
ماضي العزيمة لا يشق غباره
لكنه ما حاد قط عن الشرف
تنباكه يحيي النفوس عبيره
لكنّه ما حاد قط عن الشرف
لو بتّ ليلي لا أقر من الأسى
أو كان قلبي قد ألم به التلف
دخّنت من تنباكه فإذا الذي
أشكوه من هذا البلاء قد انكشف

A Last Tribute -01
by Subhas Chandra Chakra

Once upon a time, dear
This day, every year
Made me bathe in tear-
As it came so near.

At a pretty little past
Although it'd be the last,
For things fade so fast
't was day of my heart.

In Memory of Maya Angelou
by Bhaskaranand Jha Bhaskar

Perched on your strained life’s tree
Jumping from one branch to another
The Caged Bird set herself free…
From your fragile frame
Weakened by 86 summers’ heat,
Flying away from the mortal sight
Beyond the vast blue sky -
For an eternal rest in the abode
Immortalised by your prolific writings..

Roots (For Alex Haley)
by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

Pensile clouds of a new Truth loom.
With them are selected versions of
Extinct grief.

Looking through the yellowness of a
Dog’s eyes, this aura of Truth, pervasive,
Sours my palate.

What say the bulletins and tabloids
In their speech potency?

Dear Teacher- "A tribute to them"
by Snigdha Burman

Dear teacher, You are the best
You really stand out among the rest
As you plant a seed of curiosity and motivation,
We know & grow & succeed
Every lesson you teach,
Inspires us to dream, to work & to reach
You work hard every day & night,
To make us very bright
Every word spoken for you seems to be less,
I sometimes wonder do you ever rest?

It's midnight in Arles
by Lea Noir

I sit across from you in the dimly lit café
Your eyes are restless, your hands are stained with paint
Silent strangers inspect each other helpless
Tell me of your visions, your fears, your dreams
You speak of stars in Arles, sunflowers, colours and light

We sip our coffee, we smoke our pipes, we watch the night
You smile at me as we forget ourselves in someone's bloodstream

You are a genius, a madman, a tortured soul
