Maryam Aisha

flower
of light;
angel’s
song…
speaking God’s
Names
with certainty
and
power.
granting the gifts
of laughter,
truth,
and faith
from seasoned
lips
bursting forth
with
divine fragrance.
Maryam,
woman of God,
Aisha,
daughter of
praise
and joy,
whisper
His
words
into
the hearts
of
(We)
men.

Instant of Power
I have
witnessed
an instant
of Power.
an infinitesimal
glimpse
of
the coming
together
of will,
mission,
and force
in a divine
showcase;
evolving
over
the
minuscule
decades
of
human counting.
a reckoning
conceived
in mercy
and born
in faith.
a short-ranged
iteration
of
pain
and
joy
and
tears;
both
wrestling
for
recognition.
I
stand
in
awe!
I
have witnessed
an
instant
of
Power.
