Gabrielle Garland Untitled 49 2011 oil on panel 12″ x 16″
Why do we fear words ? Among them are words of smooth sweetness
whose letters have drawn the warmth of hope from two lips,
and others that, rejoicing in pleasure
have waded through momentary joy with two drunk eyes.
Words, poetry, tenderly
turned to caress our cheeks, sounds
that, asleep in their echo, lies a rich color, a rustling,
a secret ardor, a hidden longing.
Nazik al-Mala'ika, from “
Love Song for Words
“ (Translated from the Arabic by Rebecca Carol Johnson)
