Colourful Balloons ~ بالونات ملوّنة

Zain AlAziz

Colourful Balloons

If we could have bought, with our childhood money

an old laughter

from the balloon seller

before he was turned into a grave-digger

by the war

we would have known

how to put the life between two grey-hair lines

And smile

زين العزيز

بالونات ملوّنة

لو أشترينا بدنانيرِ الطفولةِ

ضحكةً عتيقةً

من بائعِ البالوناتِ المُلونة،

قبل أنْ تحولَهُ الحربُ

إلى حفّارِ قبورٍ؛

لعرفنا

كيف نضعُ العمرَ بين شيبتين

ونحن نبتسم.
