Your Departure...

Ya Rayah, gone with the winds...

I am celebrating with drums, a darbuka, a def and a thousands bendirs,
my heart is quivering in delight
like the strings of some old wooden luth
that has found life again
clapping and jumping
whirling in an ecstatic dance
happily ululating like women at a wedding
celebrating your departure
a joy
a blessing
a deliverance...
