Poetry

by Norhan Qasem, Staff Writer

 

How to begin?

 

Begin by asking

 

what you had for 

breakfast.

 

lunch

 

dinner—

 

begin by asking

 

why rain is wet,

 

why you can’t catch

rainbows—

 

begin by asking

 

why you can’t fly

 

why people take videos

instead of pictures

 

to capture moments.

 

Maybe begin by 

writing about people

 

You care about

or

where you come from.

 

But that’s another poem.
