* Khuzama *

(picture's source)

Well, I’ve been frequenting the horses’ stable for quiet some time now & I’ve found it very soothing being around them.. But there was this very special mare who has taken a piece of my heart.. Khuzama.. Khuzama is this exceptionally clever sweet brown mare.. She’s extremely friendly & has quickly touched my heart.. Every time I come near her, she’d rub the door’s lock with her cheek; asking me to open it for her! She loves getting patted & being hugged more than being fed! She’s also funny.. When she opens her mouth to yawn or whatever; her teeth always give me a giggle :) I love the way she blinks & how I can see myself reflected in her big sparkly black eyes.. I love her fringe.. I simply LOVE HER :)

I love horses.. Thanks to daddy, who has always been keen on instilling the love of animals in my heart.. Daddy, one of the best days of my life was that day when we went around the pyramids on the horses.. I still remember how slow you were on riding that horse.. And I also remember how fast bro & I were.. Daddy, the turtle misses you tremendously, as well as me.. I pray you’ll come back home to us safely.. Amen :)

It’s incredible the fact that we humans posses this enormous amount of strong, profound & mixed feelings.. What’s even more interesting is where those feelings could take us.. And this reminds me of this fascinating piece written by Sam called: The little love switch..

I try to control my actions & not let my feelings drive them.. And let me tell ya, it's a struggle.. I mean, I can't like this nosey security woman.. I can't stand how fake she is.. BUT, I can control our dealings.. I should be less naive & shorten our conversations.. BUT IT'S HARD! She's so sneaky man! God, I ask you to please teach me how to be more in charge of me.. 'Cuz it's hard at times.. I mean, look at Khuzama, if she doesn't like you, she shows it.. Not only that, she knows how to get back at you.. Okay okay, I don't wanna get back at anybody, I just need to learn how to be less naive..

"Prison gates won't open up for me

On these hands and knees I'm crawlin'

Oh, I reach for you

Well I'm terrified of these four walls

These iron bars can't hold my soul in

All I need is you

Come please I'm callin'

And oh I scream for you

Hurry I'm fallin', I'm fallin'

Show me what it's like

To be the last one standing

And teach me wrong from right

And I'll show you what I can be

Say it for me

Say it to me

And I'll leave this life behind me

Say it if it's worth saving me

Heaven's gates won't open up for me

With these broken wings I'm fallin'

And all I see is you

These city walls ain't got no love for me

I'm on the ledge of the eighteenth story

And oh I scream for you

Come please I'm callin'

And all I need from you

Hurry I'm fallin', I'm fallin'"

Very nice
I love animals too, they just bring something to our hearts that we can't identify. I guess humans have somehow got used to having animals as companions. Only recently we've been living in houses that have nothing but humans.

Inshallah you'll have your baba back soon ya rab

sara said...

amen :)

We really can't identify those feelings.. And thats the beauty of being humans I guess ;)

horses are gorgeous creatures subhanAllah.. absolute sweethearts, even the naughtiest of them have their own unique way of being funny

haven't been around horses much through my life, but i have faint memories from childhood where i've visited places with my parents and brother and sister.. places containing horses.. still can't forget the breeze of sunset, the fence, the blond couple infront of us with the girl playing with the horse's hair forming dafaayer out of it...

don't know where that was or when! but it still is an image in my head..

good piece Sara, and the transition between topics and emotions is seemless :)

Hope you find your catcher, Sara.

talking of memories.. I had this big doll (im more into stuffed animals than dolls though) wearing this big pink dress that I dearly loved.. You'd rotate its plastic thing & it'd dance around in circles playing this lullaby, that has slowly faded from my head..

Only yesterday, I was talking to my very old childhood friends about her (dolly) & they sang the lullaby to me.. Gosh! That was an amazing feeling that popped up & made my day :)

And btw, it means a lot to me you liking the way I've written this piece Abdo.. I don't really believe much in my writing ability.. But I do believe in my feelings.. A LOT :)

Thanks :)


my catcher?

TruthRover said...

Hurry I'm fallin', I'm allin'
catcher, see
Ok, salvager ,might be an appropriate word.
Hey, I am trying to be nice.

Gold said...

LOL rover :D

where on earth did you all nice people emerge from? specially qwaider!! man i feel that we both are connecting to a weird extent!!?

anyways.. yes ma'am the transition was natural mashaAllah, reminds me somehow of Anis Mansour's way of transition between topics in his daily article in AlAhram, but less aggressive than his...

it sure makes me smile :)

really very very busy today, and since your blog become one of my favourite blogs, so i was like: "hani, just 1 min. break, take a quick visit to sara's blog and that's it" but i really coudn't because this post really stopped me, i read it 2 times, and now i am writing a comment!

the way you expressed your feeling, ahh, lovely, i already saw Khuzama, the way she blinks and i saw myself reflected in her big sparkly black eyes :-)

btw, i will tell you a secret: [i do understand animals, i talk to them and they talk to me .. people think that i am crazy, but, who cares, i still talk to animals and they still talk to me] so, hosh, don't tell anyone :-)

anyway, have to go now, just wanted to say: i love this post!
