Poem for “O” and Lounés

if i

could write

a poem

like “O”

(Okaji)

–observe an

inanimate

object

create word-pictures

that speak

enliven 

make

it

vibrate

and sing.

and meditate

in meter

and brevity

eliciting

universal

truths…

or

if my pen

could flow

like that

of Lounés

(With a Pen)

an instrument

that

glows 

with love

and longing;

capturing divine

images

and

Propheticﷺ

praise

and

glory-

the

product

of

an

enlightened heart…

yet

i

am just

a

plodding poet,

a closet

mystic,

a silent

sufi;

who dreams

in vivid

image

and hidden

symbols;

seeking

only

to perfect

my heart

and empty

it 

in pursuit

of

nothing

else.
