Beirut "Poem by Nadia Tueni"

"Beirut is the last sanctuary in the East - Where a man can wear light"

--Nadia Tueni from "Lebanon: Twenty Poems for one Love"


  1. BEAUTIFUL photo of the Pigeon Rocks.
    I think the Tueni line translates better as : "Beirut is the last sanctuary in the East/Where mankind can still dress itself in light."
    l'homme is not 'a' man....

  2. The poem can be translated to Filipino in this way: "Beirut ang pangwakas na santuwaryo ng Silangan/na makapagsusuot ng liwanag ang sangkatauhan."
