To finish off the year, here's a simple, but lovely poem from Tunisia by Muhammad-al-Ghuzzi (translated by May Jayyusi and John Heath-Stubbs):
The PenFly over to The Drift Record/Julie Larios for the final Poetry Friday Round-Up of 2012.
Take a pen in your uncertain fingers.
Trust, and be assured
That the whole world is a sky-blue butterfly
And words are the net to capture it.
from Voices: Poetry and Art From Around the World [YA 808.81 VOI]
Have a safe and happy New Year!
