Love Unbound


Share

 

So, the other day my four years old grandson has a class in which parents / grandparents were invited to attend.

The theme of the lesson was about love, so the teacher read a story about love then asked the children to come one by one stand up and tell the class whom they love most and whom they would like to pray and say thank you for.

Some of the kids said mum some said dad, others said mum and dad when it was my grandson’s turn he stood up and said my whole family ♥️

Later that afternoon he told me “in fact I love every one on this planet earth” 

Just like my grandson, I do love everyone on this planet but I exclude the evil ones whom he is still unaware of

 

Morning Prayer


Share

Dear Most Beloved Most Kind

Fill my heart with love

So it may embrace Your entire creation

Fill my world with flowers

So it may bloom in Your adoration

Fill my life with colour

So it may sing Your Sublime Beauty

Fill my eyes with tenderness

So it may be dazzled by Your Brilliance

Fill my day with laughter

So it may resonate in the vastness of Your cosmos

Fill my arms with loved ones

So it may rejoice in Your Compassion

Fill my home with friends

So it may celebrate Your boundless bequest

Fill my hands with kindness

So it may bounce off your Generosity

 

 

Fill my mind with wisdom

So it may spin in Your Magnificence

Fill my being with gratitude

So it may dwell in Your peace, serene

Fill my soul with poetry

So it may dance to Your Splendour

Ameen

 

My Soul Bows Down


Share

 

Like droplets of dew flowing on a jasmine tree

 

Like humming of canaries as dawn breaks free

IMG_1672 copy

Like flowers in a garden swaying at twilight

Like whispers of lovers meandering under moonlight

 

 

Like fragrance of an angel floating by

Like a baby’s eyes as he sings his lullaby

 

So prays my soul

 روحي جنة روحي جنة
بها أشجارٌ
بها انهارٌ
بها ازهارُ
فلك الشكر ولَك الحمد
يا ذَا المنة

 * * *

روحي جنة روحي جنة

بها أقمارٌ
بها اطيارٌ
بها اسرارُ
ما أكرمك يا ذَا المنة

 

My soul is a heaven
With trees, rivers and flowers
Praise and gratitude
To You Most Kind
 
My soul is a heaven
With moons, birds and secrets
How generous of You, Most Kind

I Came From There


Share

I came from there
There I belong
Where sparrows fly
And babies have wings
Where poppies dance
And angels sing

I came from there
Where souls twirl
Floating up high
With stardust tails
Despite the curfews
Dazzling, their joy

I came from there
Where skies rain bombs
As air stops breathing
Families hold hands
Bathing in love
Tranquil serene

I came from there
While furious evil
Rages with hate
Humanity’s saviours
Shining in beauty
Steadfast remain

I came from there
While others watch
Bewildered in amusement
My people climb
Peeking through veils
Where time no more

I came from there
Where truths are born

Infinity meets naught
Miracles are norm
Where loss is gain
And less is more

I came from there
Where prophets still praying
Where children play
On sacred mountains
Splashing their feet
In holy springs

I came from there
Where eyes can hear you
Where tears have smiles
And grins do weep
Where stones have feelings
And martyrs live forevermore

I came from there
There I belong
Where life is death
And death means life
Where God dwells
Thus sings my soul

Ascend

To be human is to be hugely affected by what is happening in the world

Sadness, depression and grief may linger in your heart

Colours fade into one tone of grey

You may even gasp at the edge of despair, sometimes

For one breath of hope, you’d give your life

* * *

* * *

Often, you may question your sanity

You may wake up screaming at night

Your pillow soaked with tears streaming

You may wonder if it is all but a bad dream,

A nightmare rather

Or is it a 3D horror movie in which you’re sucked in somehow

An observer, helplessly watching

* * *

* * *

Did I read that correctly?

Did I truly hear the little girl saying such words?

Is that world for real?

Are those perpetrators even human?

Did I land in the wrong universe?

* * *

* * *

Volcanoes erupt in your chest

Battles rage in your head

and you,

YOU… are crushed in between

* * *

* * *

Watching in curious apprehension

You try to regain bearings

To be a voice of reason

Amidst this madness

 * * *

* * *
You hold your fearful heart, tight

You take your mind by the hand
Hush hush its flying thoughts

Tap its shoulder, ever so gently

and whisper

Dear mind, do you mind to step aside for a moment

With all due respect, your knowledge is but a speck

Infinitesimal

You are not the author, you are not the hero

Not even an actor, or a comma in the script

and the story, O the story

Written on plane ∅ with letters of Light

Finely tuned explosion shattered nothingness into being

Time was born

Layer upon layer, the cosmos unfolds

Pages turning, evolving, a masterpiece

Exquisite beauty

Grand splendour

Sublime grace

Each chapter surpasses the one before

In elegance and magnificence

Imagine the ending, in a world unseen !

 * * *
* * * * * * * * * *
Mind retreats, devout in silence

Heart serene

* * * * * * * * * *

* * *

Be conscious of the soul you are

Listen to the songs within

Spread your wings high and wide… Rise above

Heighten your inner resolve … Affect change

Tighten the rope to the Source… Spread hope

Smile at the rainbow again… The End is worth it

* * *

Just Imagine!


Waiting

By threshold of existence

Bewildered and spellbound

 

 

Watching

Over threshold of death

Perplexed and mystified

 

 

Meandering

By threshold of lunacy

One foot in and one foot out

 

 

Wondering

At the threshold of love

Awestruck and mesmerized

Imagine

Just imagine

 

If only

You and I

Could leap over

Cross the line

Free Freedom


Life has taught me

The most wonderful thing about it is

All its treasures come free

* * *

Rocks and pebbles

Amazing stones

Mighty trees

 

 

Shining stars

Sky that shelters

The air we breathe

 

 

Hills and mountains

Shores and valleys

Rivers and seas

 

Sand and soil

Snow and rain

Clouds and breeze

 

 

 

Hands that feel

Hearts that dance

Joints and knees

 

 

Flowers and roses

Colours and shades

The eye that sees

 

 

Enchanting sounds

Humming birds

The ear that hears

 

 

Friends and family

Love and joy

The smile that heals

 

 

I also learned that

All its creatures… born free… born free

 

Why is the fight then?

Why oppress? why enslave?

When freedom is for ALL

And ALL is FREE

Who? You !


 

I think of You

My soul fills with poetry

My heart pounds with joy

 

A Deafening Silent Cry
