Connections

The heart loves for solely
connections are healing,
they soften the self till
it dissolves in the Unique.

Hussein

Desert_Blossoms.jpg

~ Hussein ~

A cup from the desert’s oasis
brought to the lover’s lips,
lo! The heart sheds tears
for Hussein in his mirroring of
Rasulullah’s compassion
even in persecution~
Tonight, from every particle
in the air, escapes
the Nur of Presence!
O dear ones, let us spread
the healing blossoms that
come through Forgiveness~
