Damascus in Syria before the war by Sofia Kioroglou

I love spring
Whenever I look out the window
I see a riot of color.

Flowers of all forms and sizes
Blossoming in my garden
after being shrinking violets.
..
But Nigella damascena
is my favorite reminding me
of Damascus in Syria before the war
..
Reminding me that the Chaghoura,
the beautiful gazelle will protect me
from snipers, rapists and bombs
..
..
