Bitter Sweet Reunion

Bitter Sweet Reunion

In 2017, after five years of no information about my son's whereabouts, he was brought back to Australia. I had last seen him when he was 3 and a half.


Magic breaks the ice

chilled lovingly by her

whose intravenous nurture

kept you clinically dead

You’re a gem my boy

Such crystal may not melt

but it has a resilience

that dazzles in the sunlight

Forged of both qamr and shams

you shall use those furnace eyes

to blaze a story of permanence

into the sands of being

and the ways of seeing

picking up from

where you once began

as your innate magma

morphs into a man
