Harvesting Resilience: Tales from Olive Orchards

Olive trees carry more than an economic significance in the lives of Palestinians. They are not just like any another trees, they are symbolic of Palestinians’ attachment to their land. 

Olive groves beneath the Palestinian sun,
Symbolic bastions in a battle not yet won.
Draught-resistant, in struggles deeply sown,
They epitomize resilience, a people's own.

Through the annals, witnesses steadfast and true,
To Palestinian history, steadfast and imbued.
Tended meticulously, through generations vast,
Yet, the Israeli occupation looms, an ominous cast.

Settlers' relentless assaults, a ceaseless plight,
Permits and tribulations, an ongoing fight.
Harvest season's joy, tinged with disquiet,
Families gather, resilience put to the test.

In the crucible of challenges, they endure,
Olive branches reaching, a symbol demure.
From ancient groves to distant shores,
A narrative of tenacity, echoing forevermore.
