Arabic calligraphy text (English)

From the heights of radiant Carmel and the perfume of its uprising / from the smiles of the dew dancing on its flowers / the Creator formed a soul that carried the splendor of His secret... / So, if you are distressed by the truth or the truth is hidden / We will stay forever by your side / the Carmel, the sea and I, praying and waiting.
—Fahed Abu Khadra

Arabic calligraphy text (Arabic)

من شموخ الكرمل الزّاهي ومن ثورة عطره / وابتسامات النّدى الرّاقص في رعشة زهره / أبدع الخالق ذاتا حملت روعة سرّه... / فإذا ما ضقت بالحقّ أو الحقّ توارى / فسنبقى أبد الدّهر وإن طال وجارا / أنا الكرمل والبحر صلاة وانتظارا.
—فهد أبو خضرة
