Salmi B. Simitian: 'Dreams of Color' and 'Ghadi's House'

Dreams of Color

Once a house by the sea
Its rooftop like the mountains in the distance
Sea breeze passed through its windows
Purple drapes danced
Purple drapes waiting for the sails
The sun sets
Now multicolored drapes in the windows
Still as the night
Bright colors but no sails
Now a mall by the sea
