Why a fern would do such a thing by Bint Arab

Let me touch you. I am like a leaf that makes an impression on mud that becomes rock with a permanent engraving of another life. Schoolkids trudging through a museum will stare at it from behind the glass… maybe they are wondering why a fern would do such a thing.

Bint Arab is Iraqi American, born in Baghdad and raised in Brooklyn. Today she lives in Texas, where being a New Yorker makes her more of a stranger in a strange land than being Arab American ever could. She administers the writing forums at www.bibliophilia.org/forum/index.php and the online writers' showcase at www.bibliophilia.org.
