All Together

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1374 – The Levant … Land of the Morning light
The Levant has been described as the “crossroads of western Asia, the eastern Mediterranean, and northeast Africa”, and the “northwest of the Arabian plate”.The populations of the Levant share not only the geographic position, but cuisine, some customs , and a very long history. They are often referred to as Levantines.

The Levant has a rich history

The Levant has a rich history

ancient crossroads
buried beneath the desert
raging sandstorms

Here is my attempt:

once trade flourished
people of different faiths–
all together in peace

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
