Best Poem of Isam Hussain

The Eyes Of Horus

Once, the eyes of Horus
shone with equal brilliance,
sun and moon
played hide and seek
like two lovers in dalliance.
Then jealousy raised its head,
Seth raised his hand
against his brother, Osiris.

Lying in wait,
Seth bends his bow,
fires a vengeful arrow,
misses King Osiris,
strikes the eye of Horus,
wounding it, dimming its light.
Now the moon hides in darkness
while the sun boasts of its brightness.

The moon grows daily
more jealous and angry;
its full face burns with fury,
but can’t regain its past glory. ...

All Will Be Well

All will be well
and all manner of things will be well.
So pick up the quill,
dip it in the inkwell,
praise the Lord of All,
and proclaim, ‘All will be well.’

[Hata Bildir]
