East Wind Blowing

Today Be’er Sheva was swept with Eastern winds, the Shargiya. The Bedouin say it is a dusty, dirty, harsh desert wind.

The city has been hazy all day.

This line of poetry was told to me by Ibrahim Abu Afash:

شرقية تقهر التوبة

تلوي بعشيب الريظاني

“Easterlies crush redemption,

Twist the grass of mountain valleys.”
