Sunlight Through Bahraini Leaves

While living in exotic climes,

My spirit leaps towards these rhymes,

When seeing through this trees outline,

The sun which shimmers thoughts sublime.


And as the flicker sparkles bright,

Between the glistening and the light,

I hold my gaze upon such sight,

Observed through rustling leaves in flight.


Encircling’s of a mellow breeze,

Enfolds my contemplations – eased!

And sense wherein this place perceives,

Unhurried thoughts I’m free to please.


As nature makes reflections stray,

Away from off this ground today,

I feel the uplift takes my stay,

Toward a lightness far away.
