The Road to Pimlico

For the love of Honey, Lemon and Ginger….

The Road to Pimlico…

Another distraught Arab woman in a foreign land she calls home…

Seeking peace, serenity and a stimulating journey to the unknown…

A little window with sunlight peeping through…

A breeze, a breath of fresh air and blustering wind in winter times of blue…

Left her stranded with thoughts so austere…

And a will to march forward and strive to persevere…

Sipping honey, lemon and ginger by the window…

Waiting for the pain to disappear…

A cozy café with Christmas lights and pastries for the heart…

A bunch of hellos and cheerios to passerby’s dressed so smart…

A grid of beautiful 18th century buildings with neat facades…

Smiling faces, concealing harsh memories and traces…

Of lost love and abandoned cases…

A stroll down Belgrave Road…

Follows a candle lit dinner with food for thought…

Served on a golden platter with a silver lining…

Of refined dialog and sweet scents winding…

Whisked away by a whisper, a stroke so gentle and giggles so fearful…

For tender is the night she shares a peace of her soul to loving strangers of spirits so cheerful…

Over a warm drink of Honey, Lemon and Ginger…

Twinkling eyes squinting over reciprocated mirth…

Elevated joy brings about a momentary birth…

Of plucking smiles and skipping heartbeats…

Talks, walks and handshakes exchanged…

Daunting emotions…

Flaunting the truth…

An Arab woman in a foreign land…

Speaking of love, life and where she stands…

Lost is the thought in the stormy nights of winter…

Tender is the heart that heals from every splinter…

Silence prevails as realities unravel…

Farewell tears and departures that baffle…

Grace, honor and dignity preserved in a jar…

Next to a cup of Honey, lemon and ginger…

She sips with a smile…

Love & Live

Let Love & Let Live…
