cold crystal snow chipped
winter'd afternoon

excitement rises
in the blood
in the bones

melting through the icing
round the skin


  1. Very nice, mashaAllah...Where ya been?

  2. Thanks.
    I've been on a major all-blog hiatus. I'm amazed someone noticed. :) I started this blog-break last summer because blogs (reading them, mostly) were getting so addictive, it was taking up too much of my time. I didn't like how I obessively had to know what's going on out there in other people's lives, and felt I should focus more on my own. I still feel this way, so I'm planning just to write on my own, when I can - although as usual, I get writer's block from knowing that I'm OUT THERE, that people are reading (or are capable of reading). I feel like knowing there's an audience changes the freeness of my expression. But I still want to try, because that's one of the facets of writing - letting other people see your words.
    Hope you are well! Thanks for visiting!

  3. I check often and was so happy to see a new post. Even though just a few words, they were heavy words. Sounds hopeful and inspiring, insha'allah khair! Hope all's well with you, dear! I miss bumping into in cyber space (forums, blogs, etc). Oh well, we'll always have fb ;-)

  4. Glad to see you back online. Thanks for stopping by to say hi.

    We miss you too.
