Nocturnal Sun


There, where the wind fades away

The sky waves its own branches

Retouching icy mornings

In the shades,

Blackbirds and pigeons flapping

And disturbing the sky.

I aimlessly wander through.


Every corner evokes

Spiral lines of perpetually

Ever written sonnets,

Unveiled brides

Blur the color lines

Upon vacant altars.

I become chrysalis

Under the chaos of progress.

I extend my hands

And find only emptiness.


Where do these streets lead me to?


I try to jump over my shadow,

Gradually move

From green to yellow…

Exorbitant looks

Lacking everything

And nothing at all.

In the swinging mist

Every step reflected upon

Its own reflection,

When the twilight expands

I force myself to take shortcuts

That lead me nowhere.


Broken hearts,

Moon’s usurped glow,

Yielding ghosts

To the impregnable shine

Of window cars.

Stillness moves,

Static seconds, silence declines,

I emigrate with no belongings;

Brittle and gloomy spectrum

De-kernelling good-byes.


My mind is on hold,

Stars cry about

Humidity’s shortage

And eclectic rains,

My voice drowns.

Blink away

The ethereal fire of my eyes.

I release myself from prejudice.

I release myself

From body and soul

As nocturnal sun

Amidst the desert.

Blue Whispers


Freezing raindrops

Pour hasty voices

Over my body,

leaving behind

Fragmented unfinished moments,

In the dense night of my foliages.


Amber lights crystallize

Wet cobblestones.

Faint breeze throbs tactile words

In ragweed of your lips.


The wind impels

Among its branches

Lost – found longings

Inside the indigo ink of your gaze,

As silent opacity shimmer flashes

Delimit folds of the shining water

Running down my cheeks.

Should I hear the breeze pronounce your name?


Blue whispers articulate

Songs of the stones.

Pierced transparencies dissolve desires,

As melts the stone with the fire

And the sea on the horizon.





Only Love Will Prevail


To my darling Monsif Beroual with love.


Only love will prevail

When there is nothing left,

When memory fades away

As scattered dust

On the wind.


Only my words will speak

Of this love

Leaving a footprint

In silence,

To posterity…

For other times.

When my simple name

Be erased over time

And the words remain

Over withered leaves.


Only my love for you will prevail

In your skin of verse,

In your skin of rhyme,

On your prose skin...

Beyond the eternity borders.
