Diumbi (Sun): Keeper of Secrets

~ Diumbi (Sun): Keeper of Secrets ~

Diumbi, robed with
your golden Nur, you reign.
For billions of years
you have stimulated the earth,
propelling the Black land
to celestial creativity
from Nubia to Timbuktu,
you have danced over the lakes
of our seven spheres,
pulling us toward HU!
You make our Harps
vibrate, O solar lamp
that transmits the Secrets
of Illumination!
Only scientists of the Milky Way
can comprehend the sonic hieroglyphs
of your sustenance!
Diumbi, servant of The Divine One,
you rise and set in a million prostrations
no eyes can detect;
you are the galactic pineal gland.
From Tehuti (as) to prophet Muhammad (saw)
you unify where false systems divide mankind,
you catalyse the enlightenment
of all mystics, throughout the ages
in all cultures and nations,
you have led the Way
in this constant transition,
you are the alchemist
behind the geniuses’ tradition.
Diumbi, sign of Tawhid,
your plasma stirs materialists
to the unified field.
And at last, we leap in
the revolutionary flux
of the prophets’ Light…

Jewelry Line~Wearable Paintings

Peace & Bliss, for months I have been working on a new form of art derived from my traditional visual Sufi poems. I wanted to make smaller-sized pieces yet I also had a peculiar approach… While still being collectible, I also wanted these pieces to be wearable so I came up with this jewel~painting concept. At first I did one bracelet, and I thought the creative process with the use of new materials was so interesting and inspiring that I finally decided to make more because during exhibits ladies always ask me for smaller pieces.

I’m pleased to announce that the first collection of paintings-bracelets will soon be available through fragranceoflight.com. I’m still working on my traditional paintings that I’ll render viewable through visualsufipoetry.com so everyone subscribe to the feed.

I have found that the more I explore the purpose of Art, the more I find it mysterious and fulfilling at the same time because it involves self-dissolving which is a spiritual process always~

The mystics’ temperament inclines them toward inner activity: prayer~meditation because it dissolves them in the Nameless, this phenomenon is wildly peaceful, beautiful and unpredictable as well, it is beyond expression, words can’t touch it… that octave of meditation is but a state of being, it plunges one in silence as a way of sustenance and then whatever we do shows glimpses of that inner state… which is our collective soul state, everyone can access it as we all are spiritual representatives of Hu!

All praise is due to The Divine One.
