Celebration

there

is

no other

physical being

in

this space.

but i

am surrounded

by joy

and light

warm greetings

and

loving thoughts…

i dance

with the spirits

as i

have always

done.

the ancestors

clap

as my

contemporary choir

sings…

it is Christ’s Mass

it is

Mawlid–

my Prophet عليه السلام

was this month

born.

i

am redeemed

newly enlightened

singing

amidst the

daily sorrows

I am dealt…

looking forward

looking back

with

great clarity

and

with

Great

Grace!
