~ Spiritual Elixir ~

The movements of Salat~Prayer
open up our spiritual centers,
from inside, they refine us.
Once we become conscious,
Prayer feels like a graceful
dance with the light!
O dear ones, observe Prayer
so that you can experience
the spiritual elixir
of your highest being
meant to sustain you
beyond physicality.
Now is all there is~

In a Reciprocal Buoyancy

~ In a Reciprocal Buoyancy ~

In a movement of cosmic love,
helplessly, we gathered
lo! Particles leaped out of me
to uncontrollably join yours,
in a reciprocal buoyancy
our fusion became words!
Since, my heart goes in circles,
vertiginous, inebriated,
lost in your periphery’s warmth,
reading every golden letters
your eyelashes write:
my love, my self, my chosen one,
reach the Center, our Light!”

A Fragrance from Paradise

wisteria-dervishes~ A Fragrance from Paradise ~

Being a mystic is a temperament,
it cannot be taught nor learned
it is inherent to the soul
like a fragrance from Paradise
one cannot help to wear.
When such grace manifests
in the material world,
tremendous beauty arises,
anyone who sees it
ends up surrendering:
“la ilaha illa Allah,
there is no reality but Allah!”

escapes from their lips~
Through the presence of mystics,
blessings abound and flow,
ecstatically merging with matter,
polishing it from inside,
turning it into myriads of lights
’til they return to their Source~
For now, let us revel in
this expansive divine love
that invades the poet’s heart!

Through the Door of Self

~ Through the Door of Self ~

If you want to be loved,
be loving, be beyond facade,
manipulation and all the schemes
the ego makes up out of fear~
Get through the door of self to know Bliss!

A Thousand Scented Rugs

~ A Thousand Scented Rugs ~

In this ego-driven world,
the refinement of your Surrender
stands out, unfolds, unravels
like a thousand scented rugs
the Unseen offers to hearts
softened by Ar-Rahman,
the very Beauty of all worlds~

Come to the Divine

Nasir al-Mulk Mosque

~ Come to the Divine ~

Enter the circle of the Heart
where the guided ones gather
in awe of the Majestic One,
hear the cosmic azzan:
Come, come, come,
come to The Divine,
come, come, come
let us praise The One;
come, come, come
bow to The Most Beautiful One;
come, come, come
to the inner Mosque
where only Allahu spreads
His Infinite Love!
