Wander


WANDER The heart still beating, The breath still warm, The eyes sealed meeting A reality art form. It left the figure from the corruption it bore, Scarred and disfigured, In the world it adored. Yet unaware in the quiet, It escapes the front door, before the depraved heart seizes, Above the creations it soars. From […]

Pure Soul


  Who is my truthful friend? Who annihilates the created will, To the total submission of the Divine, Distinguished in ascending order, Enumerating feeling in the heart, Virtuous conduct and unadulterated purity, Sincere, just, believer, prophetic, Beyond conformity, he has certainty. ~Sufi Thinker

READ


Read in the name of your Lord[1] For Wit and Wisdom is man’s reward. Touch the horizon of complex science Battle the chains of mind’s defiance. Fly the distance, travel the lands Sail farther than the ocean expands. Search for treasures of infinite knowledge Experience a thinker’s place of solace Read under the ascending sky, Witness angels descend with a reply.[2] Read in the […]

Transient


  TRANSIENT If I were to ruminate on the passing of time, I would cripple with depression. If I were to contemplate the dying of beauty, I would mourn with misery. If I were to ponder the days departed, I would be consumed with nostalgia. If I were to remember the transient kin, I would writhe with grief. If […]

The Man


There that man we saw each day, Not one in town knew his name, With a big smile he’d pass and say, G’ mornin, peace, can I help?, good day. He played with the children on the streets, And became the companion of lonely souls. He lightened a peasants burden load, And served as the eyes of elder […]

I see No One


While on my trip to Jordan and a few other Middle Eastern countries I discovered something which I express in this poem. Before reading please note that the values and perceptions of Arabs are as of being the most hospitable, kind, and generous people. They meet others like long lost friends. Therefore, the poem by no means […]

Knowledge I Am


Do not doubt my boundless nature. I do not cease. I am far greater.   I am the soft wind below the wings. I am the throne of mighty kings. I am the stars that shine at night. I am the orbit on which planets’ flight. When you feel the drop of rain, I am the […]

Strolling the Heavens


I trace the bark of every tree, And feel the life in every leaf. I eat foods of abundant flavor, And taste fruits of wondrous savor.   My sight is sharper than a hawk, I see the distance of time’s walk. I hear every step of nature, Listen to every beat of creatures. I swim […]

The Girl in Me


I could be that girl. Watching as my house burns down, People shouting and running around, My mother sweeps me off the ground. And whispers, “It’s time to go.” I could be that girl. Sitting in a poor school building, Learning from torn textbooks, Eating from my small tiffin, Waiting for another sun to set.  […]

Tick Tock


Tick Tock Fear and regretting words, Tears roll down my cheek. There she lay soundless sleep, Memories, I recall her SPEAK;   Tales of knight and shining armor, A kingdom far beyond reach, The princesses and fairies I wished to be, A beautiful world of FANTASY.   TicK tocK Let the clock reverse, Bring her back […]

The Meadow


I can taste her sweetness; The calm winds passing a breeze, The bits of sunlight through looping trees, The scent of flowers recalling memories.   I can hear her serenity; The running of a distant waterfall, The soft chirping of hidden birds, The crick and buzz of every insect.   I can feel her embrace; The beady […]
