علي لا يحرك ساكناً

Last night, I came across this old college note dated Jan. 29th, 2000:

تمنت خطاكَ دروباً غريبة


إلى الشارعِ المستريب

تؤدي الخطى المستريبة


A few verses from one of Ali al Safi's poems.

I searched my bookshelves and my drawers looking for his book..
Went through dad's library.. mako..
Looked in my room one more time, but again, to no avail.

It was the first day of Eid al Fitr when Ali al Safi died in a car accident 6 years ago today.

Eid Mubarak, everyone.
والله يرحم علي

The more boring the class is, the more artsy the notes get.
And this was one of my favorite classes.
Let's talk money now :P

Very belated condolences 7abibti :*
Your dad passed away before that book was published. You must have him mixed up with Ahmed al Safi al Najafi.

Tarteeb?? Me??
Thank you so much for the link :* and I'll send you a message now

ولاّدة said...

عيدك جميل ومثير

سؤال: ما هو رأي المقلد بالشعر والموسيقى؟

ارتحت لما عرفت إنه لا يمانع الرقص
فمتع الحياة بالنسبة لي الشعر ...الموسيقى ...والرقص

دمتى شيطونة /حلوة/مرحة

moumen said...

الله يرحم علي الصافي

تمنّى خُطىً
إلى الشمسِ تُفضي
وآلتْ خُطاهُ
لدينا قريبةْ

it's great of you to remember him on Eid's day..
