Celeste Snowber: an alphabet of longing

Migration, 2017                                                                         Marsha Nouritza Odabashian

an alphabet of longing

there is not enough letters
in the alphabet to define
the characteristics of longing

sketched into the Armenian soul
varied, complex and complicated
as the cuisine of food

the alphabet of longing
has aromas which sit
long after is recognized

even words don’t express
the inexpressible haunts
where yearning aches

in the dance of migration

Celeste Nazeli Snowber
