زرقاء اليمامة*

Hands chained
By distance
And eyes
To be free.

How can I
A fire that’s
So far away
From me,
But can
Still see?


*Zarqa al Yamama- a blue-eyed woman with exceptional intuition, keen sight, and ability to predict events before they happened. Zarqa’s tribe relied on her powers in detecting enemies and defending their land. (pre-Islamic Arabian myth)
