An interesting blend of see and land

 a Poem

By Ali Al-Hail

Al-Jazeerah,, April 12, 2010

An authentic merge between heart and mind..
A little dancing peninsula on a rope of tide..
Moderate..neither is left..Nor is it right..     

Qatar: The Sea's Bride..
The Desert's Pride..

The civic sense of our ailing World..
The lyrical voice in a global band..

In harmony: the tide and sand..
altogether .. hand in hand..

Sings for the World in a single word..
Prays for humanity to Almighty God..
Stands by all good and bad..

Respected by all..young and old..
Pal and lad..Wise and mad..     

A homeland of all homes and lands..
A warm nest for all immigrating birds..
A fertile soil for all hearts and minds.. 

Big in heart..though, small in size..
A safe haven for all deprived humans..
On its shining shores..

Like diamond and gold..
they wash off their drowsiness..

In an ocean of dazzling sun lights..
In Qatar: they score their goals..
