She has also written this touching poem of encouragement for me and Lebanon:
FOR BOUBOO AND YOUR LEBANONYasmin, I thank you immensely...
there was a time
when a butterscotched tongue
was your candied retreat
now tin soldiers have sacked the sandman
and crept away with the last thick crumbs of sleep
sliding your peace under and out the door
where all the stars have fallen
but like Colossus
(remember, you towered tall like him once before
you run on burning feet
scooping them up
and hurling them back into the sky
Many great poets have also contributed to my dear friend Katy's poetic Call to Arms at Poets101. I thank them all!
