The Ghost Within Us by Amir Elzeni

Digging yesterday
to find ourselves

beyond expectation,

memories vivid
as rain to the blind,

living between rhythms,
trying to dance
to a tune:
we all
seem to know,

cannot quite

Amir Elzeni, USA

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.

The image of how vivid rain is to the blind is absolutely wonderful
