...WHERE IS DAWN?!

















Ones tickled as a naturalist holding a crustacean…
Now paralyzed as twigs in ruins of Caesarean!
...Just where is dawn ?!

Ones sneering at the Sea as stone buildings in Jerusalem
Now blinded by mixed faiths as clouds above Bethlehem
...Just where is dawn ?!

Ones sprinting uphill as stone-paths in Jaffa
Now tattooed with rust as old quarries in Haifa!
 ...Just where is dawn ?!

Ones soaked in splendor as gardens of Bahai
Now famished underneath as bones of Tel-hai…
 ...Just where is dawn ?!

Ones laughing undercover as a tailor’s bobbin!
Now mute and legless as statue of Rabin!
...Just where is dawn ?!

Ones boiling with tales as a Jewish mariner
Now frozen in pain as a broken recliner
...Just where is dawn ?!

Ones bleeding with joy as Israeli rockets!
Now clotting in the cold as charred sockets!
 ...Just where...Just where...Just where  is dawn ?!

Inspired after touring various historical sites in Israel (Haifa, Telaviv, Bahai Gardens, Jerusalem,Jafa, and Caesarean); a large paintwork of a sitting-sleeping man in a Telaviv Hotel where we  stayed (Medina Hotel), and the dark moments I was going through during those days....as any  normal man…..
