Wasan H. Ibrahim Poems
Paradise of Love
In my belief Love is the spiritual beam, The beautiful dream The lovely tune of pure, unending stream,
Retreated Love So Long Ago
I've never realized In my devoted march towards success The dead hours I've left behind Leaving them undefended, unconsidered in relapse.
Not Paved Yet -new-
Not Paved Yet The taxi has walked up… the taxi has walked down On this very earth not on the Moon With every car quaking the man in the backseat utters bad words
Civil War: Self-Cannibalism
Weird is the sight, It stands upright, Holding the knife with something Which were hands,
No tear to shed, I feel so dry, My soul is numbed, No birds…no sky.
تمردتُ على الموتِ واسمعت الأنام من صدى همسي تمردت على الأوطان أيا وطني
ذلك جسد هامدٌ يحكي كل الأسرار عن انسان كان يوماً تناثر أشلاءً في قلب انفجار عن حلم بالحياة و بالنهار
Knowledge is the pair of wings To the eternity makes us fly… Knowledge is the gem of wits That lifts us to the borders of the sky
I remember thee In every corner of my years, I remember thee In the light of my smiles
Can You Draw Her?
Can you draw her? A princess comes out of dreams, With her angelic face, Her golden locks and colorful laces;
Apology to My Country: To Whom I Confess...
I wonder whether you'll read this or not, I once told you the whole plot Of love, waiting and yearning And a life has been lost.
Fashion New: Iraq after War and Invasion
My country is changing for new Everything is modern in saturation and hue Red and black for blood and blow Guns are the new-children-game instead of seesaw
I Can Dream No More
Oh, Dream Nothing is true, or to say for sure… Yet, I can dream no more. Although reality I abhor
في العراق ليس هناك شعار للحياة بل سباق أمنيات نتمنى...نتمنى...ومن ثم نتمنى

Paradise of Love
In my belief
Love is the spiritual beam,
The beautiful dream
The lovely tune of pure, unending stream,
It is the singing nightingale
Composing a symphony
That even the deaf can hear
It is the spoiled child who grows
In the spring of flowery years
It is the star, glittery and bright
That shines in the dimness of the sad heart
And the yearning eyes roving left and right
Waiting for the whole moon to appear
Sealing a kiss over the long-years-waiting hair
It is the sea that reworks the pearls
Of the bottoms a bracelet, unique and rare.
Take my hand...
