Stellar Discourse


~ Stellar Discourse ~

Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim~
Every time they said my name
I heard your summon:
Aïda! Return! Return!
I centered on the ï
and lo! Everything ceased,
the divine Music behind Silence
saturated all existence,
Beauty unleashed
and I sat still,
observing the pen
hint its stellar discourse…
