All I Can Do
–Naomi Shihab Nye“We have such a beautiful country, but it’s not been utilized before for this kind of tourism…” – George Rishmawi, AramcoWorld
One hand out against the earth,
one hand up against the sky.
Somehow I walk between them.
They carry messages through my body,
on a cord stretched between far places.
What could have been, what might be…
Some days it’s all I can do
to stand still and answer you.
