With Loving Hands

Here is another poem written by Nasra Al Adawi, a renowned Omani poetess. She has kindly contributed this poem to be included in some pages of our group cookbook project 'You Can Cook' for 'Feed a Hungry Child' campaign. Please give it a reading and let her know what you think.

With Loving Hands

No one knows
How to fill
In swirls of air

Then quench
All thirsts
With cup of emptiness

Yet with united hands
Juicing love to water
That quenches thirsty souls

Hand in hand
Mixing tenderness dough
Baking daily bread
That satiates hungry mouths

So all it takes
Deep loving hands
That caters soul food
To quench thirst and hunger
