Our Boat

Sassine El Nabbout Photography
It was not that difficult to choose… it is the one that pleased our eyes…
The river was calm… the winds were soft and somewhat cold… but who cares… we were together…
We looked at the boat bottom… there were water…
A feeling of trouble filled us… we checked the other boats… "they are all the same"…
You said: do you know how to swim?
I said: yes… and you?
You said: if you know, I have nothing to fear…
You were the first to enter… moments of disequilibrium… I hold you and the boat with all my power…
When it was my turn… I thought I can do it alone, but it was worse… when it calms again, a smile was drawn on my face… your hands was holding me and the boat…
We were hiking… your eyes were mine…
Go to the right… go to left… turn around… watch out…
I remember every word… every smile…
The orchestra of birds was around us… I never heard them singing that much…
They said that this day will be a bad one… but it was the best day…
Sailing to where we don’t know… but very sure as if we were there many times…
We didn’t talk that much… we were just looking at each other and at everything…
Parrots were imitating our few words… and they are repeating till now…
Our visit was the origin of that legend…
All the habitants and visitors of this region are thinking that the trees talk… and the echo of “I love you” is filling this forest…

it is a great!!! i felt as if I were there in this beautiful and romantic place, where 2 lovers like to face the nature and find it beautiful wherever they go, and how much difficulties will be, it still beautiful because they are together for life.
I LOVE YOUR WRITINGS SASSINE!!
