simoun

whirls rising in the heart of the desert
carry on the wings of sand
the name of god’s venom towards the black moon…
Samael and Lilith reunited,
ancient gods of forgotten beginnings
shifting the shape of the storm of dust,
grains of sand caressing the moaning of winds
and touching the footsteps of angels,
and above all – the mercurial scent of re-genesis…

Simoom (Arabic: سموم‎ samūm; from the root سم s-m-m, “to poison”) is a strong, dry, dust-laden local wind that blows in the Sahara, Palestine, Israel, Jordan, Syria, and the deserts of Arabian Peninsula. Alternative spellings include samiel, sameyel, samoon, samun, simoun, and simoon.
Samael (Hebrew: סמאל‎) (also Sammael) is an important archangel in Talmudic and post-Talmudic lore, a figure who is accuser, seducer and destroyer, and has been regarded as both good and evil.
Lilith (Hebrew: לילית‎ Līlīt; Arabic: ليليث‎ Līlīṯ) is believed to have originated as a female Mesopotamian storm demon associated with wind and was thought to be a bearer of disease, illness, and death.[…]In Jewish folklore, Lilith is the name of Adam’s first wife, who was created at the same time and from the same earth as Adam. She left Adam after she refused to become subservient to Adam and then would not return to the Garden of Eden after she mated with archangel Samael.
