Cosmicity: New Book of Love Poems

 

COSMICITY_banner

Peace, I’m excited to announce the release of my new book of Love poems “Cosmicity“. Proximity to this reality of Love is primordial and communal, so much so that its quest transpires in all our experiences, whether joyful or painful, its purpose is to expand us therefore I will be sharing bits of “Cosmicity” regularly in the forms that manifested during its creative process.

A big thank you for your support throughout the years~

And Such Blessings

Love rips our egos to shreds,
lo! Our hearts grow legs
to seek the company of saints,
prophets and such blessings.

Transcendent Dance

I no longer know
who is who in
this transcendent dance;
are we you at this moment
or am I still myself?

Letting Go

In letting go,
there is a grace
that cleanses the soul~

Your Soul’s Secrets

This innocence, we both cherish!
You put your hand on my ear
to reveal your soul’s secrets
and I succumb…
The purity of your heart spreads
as if music in my tympanums,
I lay on the floor, my centers
filled with divine laughter;
my location no longer matters
the entire world is you…

Meanders of Obscurity

~ Meanders of Obscurity ~

Bismillah, know that
adversity polishes you,
it brings you at the feet
of the Beloved in a way
that shatters your false self.
Be patient my love,
your light unravels best
in the meanders of obscurity.

To Run to a Sacred Love

RuntoLove.jpg

My dearest one,
we learn to attach
so many conditions
to Love that when

a rare deeper Love
appears, we are lost;
not knowing what to do
with the gift since

its value is beyond all
the common, limiting
considerations we are
accustomed to; whereas Love

by its very nature expands
and thus surprises,
so how can we enjoy
its abundant virtues

if patience is absent?
The Divine grows Love
like a seed planted
with devotion in the

fertile grounds of
a disinterested Heart
that trusts what may come.
Blessed is the one

who, by wisdom, learns
to run to a sacred Love
instead of running
away from it~
