My lover asks me

Syrian poet Nizar Qabbani combines simplicity with elegance whilst exploring themes such as love and feminism. That being said, this poem is a great example of that style. Short, sweet and romantic. Although there probably are a few more differences between a woman and the sky.

My lover asks me:
“What is the difference between me and the sky?”
The difference, my love,
Is that when you laugh,
I forget about the sky.

Nizar Qabbani
