Intifada St., Beit Jala, Westbank, Palestine

Intifada St., Beit Jala, Westbank, Palestine

the sky is leaden during the day

and a fiery orange at night… but our hearts
are as neutral as the flowery emblems on a shield

Under siege, life is the moment between remembrance 
of the first moment, and forgetfulness of the last

 

From Mahmud Darwish, Under Siege (2002).
