The Second Anniversary of the Syrian Revolution

Syria: the lady

ايتها السيدة في ربيعها الثاني تنحني الثورة لك وتعانق أرضك وأولادك يا سوريا

On the second anniversary of the Revolution, on its second spring, I am uttering a prayer in the image above, for Syria to remain sovereign and integral.  With images of beauty does the artist keep the gathering darkness at bay.  With trees of life,  memories of spring and abundance, with making sense and giving meaning to the senseless and the soul-destroying, with poetry and creativity does the spirit hold on to sanity and wholeness as the land and the people it loves stand at the edge of the abyss and annihilation. My heart is heavy, but I shall go on invoking the light and trees of life and I shall keep listening hard to catch intimations of the song of the earth for your earth will sing again Syria of the thousands of years.
