share with me
as we review
i have carefully created
an inventory for your examination
this section contains
desired objects of this world
and other coins of the realm
here i have listed your loves
and others in your family
here i have itemized
things only known to you
each is clearly marked
and labelled according to their worth
so that this rental agreement
may be honored
during your brief stay
Wa-alaykum as-salam! 😉
May Allah bring peace be upon you, your family and your home.
And as to the document: do you presume we could slightly alter certain points in it? Like for instance the falling in love part? Could we replace that we jewelery shopping in the medina?
Choukran, sidi. I shall be on my way now.

Rental agreement?. . . hmmm. . .perhaps a good landlord. . reminds me of a Bible story where the landlord rented out a vineyard and later when he sent his servants to check on it they beat up the servants. He then sent his son and the renters killed the son. What should the owner do? Oh well, I digress. Hopefully your renter is a kind man.
Love this poem. We really do just have a rental agreement don’t we?
WAW Charlie! I can see how involved you were in their culture!!! you have a very accurate description of the custom…I am not going to say more…
Well, this is how I interpreted your poem; my way:)
I went to Morocco not Tunisia, but they also have the delicious mint tea there, (little bit too sweet though)
Have you noticed that in the hot countries citizens wear long sleeves and clothes that covers them completely, and they drink hot beverages?
One more thing: did you know that what is written in Arabic on the door is: Sherif’s office, the west palace.
Beautiful poem and beautiful picture!!!
I Love your post today!!!excellent job!
Take care my friend
No I didn’t know what was written on the door….thanks!

dang, wicked cool…just make sure its what you want. smiles.
woah– cool and unexpected! like a punch in the mind, in a good way.
I’m half Lebanese, my father wanted two cows for me. I remember it well. Thank god he was joking, I don’t think rural north wales “got” his joke. His daughter certainly didn’t!! Lol great work again Charles 🙂
I suspect rural north wales didn’t get the joke…but I’m certain there we many a lad asking their dads for two cows. 😉
just dropping by to say i love this poem. the wit and new words picked up from your wanderlust are amazingly rich with cultural images. great read in a flash fictionesque style.
I love this poem. I
I was half-asleep when I started reading and by the time I got to the end, I was really happy.
Nice – very moving
I think this is my favorite, so deep and symbolic…. Strong meaning behind it, love it!
Best I’ve read in a long time!
Your poetic rhythm and the way you combine suck symbolic images with them takes it to another level.
Love this one because it is all that and documentary, at the same time.
Thanks for charing it with us!
I ment ‘such symbolic images’ not suck. Sorry about that 🙂
