ilm (c) 2010 Aïda Touré


~ ilm ~

the state we meet in,
soul in soul,
we dance with the Cosmos,
tracing Love
through the breath,
its knowing and the drunkenness
that wildly leads us,
to subtle ilm, the corridor
to “Read!” the metaphor
that only the unlettered mind
could bring forth
with brilliance,
with unmatched excellence.
Lo! Do you hear?
Someone is knocking
at our centers’ door,
we have said too much,
seal our lips,
make us go within,
tear the veil;
gently, my love,
let us dissolve…

  1. Now that is a sublime secret… lovely. Carry on writing dear Aida. You write much too infrequent! But ah, we must take what God grants us…

    Salams from Malaysia!


  2. Malaikum Salam Taufiq, nice to hear from you. You are right, I should post more often… I will whenever time allows for it inshAllah~ Hope all is well on your side of the planet.
