The artwork inspired by two poem

"A Mirage" by M. Vasalis

In the midst of this desert of sun,
stones and dried crops all of a sudden I see my own landintact through this fire:
pale water, fog over the grasslands,
I see how calm and gentle it was.
Rarefied as the thin dead moon,
that still shines in daytime,
but better than a reminder more desirable than any thing
I see the far water glittering while my eyes try to drink it.

"The Earth is Closing on Us" by Mahmoud Darwish

The earth is closing on us, pushing us through the last passage,
and we tear off our limbs to pass through.

The earth is squeezing us.
I wish we were its wheat so we could die and live again.
I wish the earth was our mother. So she'd be kind to us.
I wish we were pictures on the rocks for our dreams to carry as mirrors.
We saw the faces of those to be killed by the last of us in the last defense of the soul.

We cried over their children's feast.
We saw the faces of those who'll throw our children.
Out of the windows of this last space.
Our star will hang up mirrors.

Where should we go after the last frontiers?
Where should the birds fly after the last sky?
Where should the plants sleep after the last breath of air?

We will write our names with scarlet steam.
We will cut off the hand of the song to be finished by our flesh.
We will die here, here in the last passage.
Here and there our blood will plant its olive tree.
