HOMELAND/By Sami Khalil
( A celebration of America's day, its ideals and the natural wonders ) 
)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

This is the land!
Your pledge of allegiance
Your exile... forsaken 
Your fertile imagination
Your stripes and colors
You blood flows through
Hopes and dreams proffered 


This is the land!
that loamed your cinch
with golden moments
with outre' dreams
with madrigal realities
with brave's therondies
where its timeless freedoms
breathe the air of knowing
that all men are created equal
even the festooned distaffs too
with merited causes of liberty
that knows neither sopors nor slumber
and justice is blessed with blindness.

This is the day!
For the miens of unsung heroes
For the visages of mantic moons.
For the outward manifestation
For the inner divine essence.

This is my homeland!
A lucid diamond in scented bowers.
You fire the mind of a poet and captivate 
the heart of a wanderer, and in your love 
I shall find life's fulfillment, and in your 
school of nature, I shall learn the art of
living truth but in your sorrow, I shall 
lament with the widowed for in our gilded 
peaks we lost the summit to the wrath
of man reaping his fruits which courses
now in our bodies, minds and souls.

This is the New World!
These are my gnarled hands...

(This review, of course, applies to those words I actually understood. The poet's flowery vocabulary often exceeds my level of expertise--even when I use a dictionary attempting to decode phrases. Obviously, my failing.)
Soaring ode to a wounded giant; extolling the inspired principles upon which the United States was founded.
Raises up its basically good, hard-working people.
Truly heartwarming, Sami!
Thank you.

I had to read this one a few times. There's a lot going on. I prefer poetry that reads easy and hits hard but every now and then I come across a piece that makes me think and after picking it apart and piecing it back together it's was worth the effort. Well done.

Thank you so much Keely Jane for this lovely review and kind visit. All appreciated.
Sami Khalil,
"HOMELAND" in reading the many faceted list of beauteous strengths the images of the cost have the freedom to write poems like this became quite vivid.
Phrases like, "Your blood flows through hopes and dreams proffered." with madrigal realities, with brave's therondies." and justice is bless with blindness" for the miens of unsung heroes" This is the new world. These are my knarled hands." These are just a little of the gems which touch this heart.
I appreciate your reminder of what we cannot take for granted in this hard won homeland.
Blessings,
Kathy

Very nice sentiments. In God's eyes we are all created equal. Color, race or religion should not matter here if this is really the land of the free. Valentine
