My Palestinian sister,
Daughter of Abraham, like me,
Let us build a sturdy bridge
From your olive world to mine,
From my orange world to yours,
Above the boiling pain
Of acid rain prejudice

(“A Bridge of Peace”)

Peace is indeed a pregnant woman,
Peace is a mother.

(“Peace is Woman and a Mother”)
