Dusk Revelling

Palestinians show their skills on the beach during sunset in Gaza City

Photographer: Mahmud Hams


Orange glow of sunset

plays on Palestinian beach play


This thin line where sand meets sea

is repose for the reviled


The wash of evening

enlivens leisure for the scorned


Definition between sea and sand

drawn through this recreation


Like a thin string,

a welcomed passive division


In these partitioned lives

on a strip of Mediterranean
