Asaad Hail

Actor from Basra, Iraq

Volterra, I Will​

The morning smile scented with roses
the smile of a bird
flying over the mountains
between grapes woodlands
and singing
I’m free
without borders

the infinite smile of children in the morning
and the delight of the valley at the spring rain
the shimmer of a day at early hours of dawn
I miss you

let me sleep on your lap like an infant
drink more wine and be lost
and rest
from anxieties of affections
and distant hope

the blush on the good people’s cheeks
will I come back to you one day?
I will, I will
