Poetry: [The Year of Fathers]

[The Year of Fathers]

In a house protected by fathers   & not with their absences 
You would know    what not to call me
There were three of us   a daughter a father a chandelier
Each assigned with a wrong title  a Noor a Body a Light
The problem with history was that    I never lived it

                                   Welcome to the year of fathers

The thing about history is   its family name is past
The thing about past is   its family name is karma
The thing about karma is   its family name is it-returns
[The Year of Fathers] is a personal prophecy; not an announcement, only an acknowledgment. It explores a daughter's relationship with history and fathers in the family, only to understand more about how the threads of time, forgiveness, and histories intertwine. 

It's the second poetry piece I have written in 2018. The start of this new year has been hectic, full of unexpected energies, traveling, and fantastic work projects. There was little time to be home and focus on the tender process of creating an artwork. But now that things have slowed down, I am writing again. 
I got a new laptop, the one I had always wanted to get. It's a beautiful MacBook Pro 2017. With it, comes a responsibility of getting work done, which includes reviving this blog, reading poetry from both classical and contemporary poets, and of course, writing with a capital W
