Who Can Find a Cunning Poet..?!

by Rita Odeh
(Nazareth, Israel)

Who can find
a skillful, cunning poet..!?
for her price is far above rubies.
The heart of her reader
does safely trust in her.
She keeps surprising him
all the days of her life.
Like the merchants' ships
she brings her insights from afar.
She rises also while it is yet night
to meditate.
Then, she seeks the silk of the dream
and weaves her poems.
She is never scared of storms
for her palace is built
on a solid soil.
Her readers arise up
and call her blessed.
Her critics also
and they praise her.


Many have tried the language
Prose and poems.
but I-
who know the secret
of the rose's scent-
excelled them all.

Great thoughts, very interesting. Poetry should hold inspiration, truth and guidance in words that live on.
