The Canal of Brugge

Friday, April 30, 2010 | Dr. TAHER ALWAN

In Brugge we left our poems

Our love`s memories…..

Along ……

Through the narrow roads,

We left the horses

And the strangers

In Brugge we crossed the colored rivers

The birds on our heads

And the maps of the old Cities on surface of the water of Brugge`s canal

When we lost

We found a Greek restaurant

From Delfi

Brugge in the spring suit

Opened the gates

To the dancers

Brugge mixed it`s days and nights

With love and memories .




* Brugge is the capital and largest city of the province of West Flanders in the Flemish Region of Belgium. It is located in the northwest of the country .The historic city centre is a prominent World Heritage Site of UNESCO. Along with a few other canal-based northern cities, such as Amsterdam, it is sometimes referred to as "The Venice of the North”..WP

The boats of Ostend

Thursday, April 29, 2010 | Dr. TAHER ALWAN

On the coast of Ostend

I saw the old fisherman

Alone ,

Between the boats

The boats with no sailors

The young girls alone with no friends

The fisherman called the old friends

The port with a gray color

No fishes yet and no lovers on the benches

I saw the old fisherman singing alone

I saw the young two girls alone

Before the sunset we heard the voice of the sailors

They came with the fishes

The old fisherman waiting for them

With gifts and flowers

The girls waiting with sweets

The old fishermen

The girls

The boys

The birds

All , on the boat

They celebrated all the night

Ostend welcome it`s old sailors



* Ostend is a beautiful biggest Belgian city on the coast , which has all the assets of a large town, situated in Europe's busiest maritime area ,it is undoubtedly a versatile short sea port. It located in the Flemish province of West Flanders.
