    Oh wow, what a beautiful poem…”She’s definitely lost in the joy…by lost, I mean she’s being true to herself…that’s why she dances…as she’s unique & sees things differently…that’s the beauty & essence of her…many congratulations, dear Karima ✨💟💫

    • Thank you dearest Navin for your comment…She was a true lesson for me many years ago, when I was one of the mourners filing by and she was dancing on a grave…Many people shook their heads and I was one, until I realized I was witnessing a priceless moment of innocence.. sheer joy and innocence and I stopped judging her and admired this state..I had lost years before….

    I just took a look at “The Graveyard” KARIMA ! I am in awe of how much you can say with so few words and how your words made me visualize your written painting. Kudos Karima ! You are an
    OLD SOUL Karima. However, I would be VERY shocked if you did not already know that !!
    ( From one old soul to another ! ) Maybe our paths have crossed in a previous life. Maybe not.
    Like ships in the night, awaiting a new DAWN ! I hope you are happy Karima. You deserve to be HAPPY !!! Peace Karima

  8. just read your poem there. The poem touched me.

    I remember a couple months ago I saw a homeless child dancing in a rain like this is what he ever wanted in his life. I saw other people there, walking past by him and running holding umbrellas or founding cover.

    Your words here touched me, it is so beautiful to read.
