Majesty by Amir Elzeni

Peeling a cucumber
staring out
the kitchen window
it's 92 degrees
but all I see
is snow

falling down
on sculptures
gargoyles angels
black iron fence

it's spring
in my snow

red roses with
white flakes
blue butterflies

humming birds
kissing honeysuckle
rows of purple lavender
arbors of climbing
white roses and
orange morning glory,

I light
a lilac candle
a glass of red wine
put a pillow
behind your back,

I gently crush
a cucumber
with fresh mint,
sage, jasmine
and rose petals
to massage and
kiss your feet.

Amir Elzeni was born in Cairo, Egypt in 1966. Moved to America at age nine. Painfully shy and instinctively driven. He plays guitar a little. His music is the Blues (thanks to Buddy Guy), Jazz and Flamenco. He owned, operated and was the chef at a blues bar. Where he had the pleasure of booking many of the great /legendary blues artists, up and coming young cats and he is honored to say they became his friends and extended family. He was also lucky to meet a girl that he fell in love with in such a magical way.
