Dreams and Realities

Nahida Izzat

“There is only a fine line that divides

Dreams and reality”

They say

In my world

There is no line

My dreams and my reality

Are one and the same


Blending in

As colours unite

New hues are born

From blue and yellow

Gentle green emerges

As red embraces blue

Vivid violet comes to life

My universe is a rainbow

Of many… many colours

No lines

No divisions

My dreams and my reality merge

As if smudged

By an artist brush

I… like a feather

Drift in between


Nahida Izzat: "I am -Jerusalem born- Palestinian refugee living in exile for over 40 years. I was forced to leave my homeland, Palestine at the age of seven during the six-day war.

I am a mathematician by profession but art is one of my favourite pastimes, I love hand-made things, so I make dolls, cards, and most of my own clothes.

I also write poetry, and participate in dialogues with known and unknown friends as I believe that communication is the first step of understanding, I believe in building bridges not walls.

My shy nature hinders me from public speaking, so I try to compensate for my shortcomings by writing! I started writing about three years ago when my friends insisted I should write about my memories, experiences, and my feelings as a Palestinian. So I self published two books (I Believe in Miracles and Palestine, The True Story) [Biographical information: Growing Gardens for Palestine]
