Men of Sod

Art Showcase, Authors, Omar Abdelhamid, Poetry

Who are these men of sod

Lucky if spotted with ungrown seed

Whose broken bones

are, mixed with plight, now stones

Men, these men launched a degree too far

And chose the wrong second to slip away

And though the sod is hard to see through

Lord, these fools are mortals too!

Monet

Art Showcase, Authors, Omar Abdelhamid, Poetry

“Monet”

I’ll set a bridge

In a flowing gleaming stream.

Beside the tallest tree

Will be my sky-scraping towers.

And I’ll lay some concrete

And stone blocks

Amidst your flowery jungle crops.

Until my juxtapositioning makes it so

That we are one

And That WE are beauty

That WE are art

-Omar Abdelhamid
