That Voice  Sings a Thousand and One Songs

That voice

sings a thousand and one songs

listen to it

as you listen to the reed

separated from source

it sings all day

and night

The nightingale has become dumb

as the moon seeks the sun

this burning heart seek thee

awaiting to eclipse  text d term drd txt sF

to catch a glimpse

the entire cosmos await this day

a dance of heaven and earth

 

That voice

sings a thousand and one songs

listen

listen to the reed

separated by source

it yearns all day

and night

The ocean has silenced itself

whispers heard in every wave

by those who wait by the shore

awaiting to meet the Beloved

to drink a sip

while the blue skies made privy

the Sun peeks beyond the clouds

a silhouette upon the ocean of elegant palms

a dance of light and shadow

a shimmering Ocean of Love and longing

desiring itself through this reflection

of Ocean, sky and all that’s under.

To Be Free of I

I want to drink from
The tree of life
to be free of I
to immerse in you
to be free of you
An annihilation in you
A full detachment of we
To rise above the chains of lawamma
to be free of the chatters of mind
a fusion of emptying and silencing
in the presence of mutaminna

I want to drink from Kausar
to be free of I
to immerse in Mustafa’s Nur
to be free of desire’s whispers
an annihilation in Hussainiya
a detachment of dunyawiya
To rise against every Yazeedi
to be free of nasibiyya
a fusion of submission like Sajjadiya
In the presence of Zainabiyya

I want to drink from Hayder’s Ocean
to be free of I
to immerse in his reality
to be free of sin’s insanity
an annihilation in Zahra’s Kausar
a subversion from distraction
to rise against tyranny
to be free of all oppression
a fusion of truth and justice
in the presence of Haramain

Perfumed Corpse in Ishq’s Chain

Ya Habibi Ya Hussain

Medina to Makkah you came
peace your train
a holy caravain
72 lovers from Haramain
my heart complains
of this pain
driving me insane
You slain?
not in vain!
eternal spirit of Hashemain
Love we feign?
Truth we claim

Ya Habibi Ya Hussain
no blame
to Abel or Cane
Yazeed’s shame
his father insane
a tyrant’s reign
for worldly gain
how vain!
An Aashiq’s game
the battlefield a stain
your followers, an enviable attain
Imam Zain in pain
Zainab laments pure rain
Asghar Ali in disdain
Sakina trembles ain ain?
Abbas’ body blain
service his only aim!

Ya Hussain!
Ya Hussain!

Shimmer enters hell’s lane
arrows drip dum Hussain
Shah Hast Hussain!
eyes on Zuljana’s mane
your eyes downcast, plain
perfumed corpse in Ishq’s chain
cosmos numb to explain.

.Silence I ascertain.
(Fatiha)

skies fail to contain
heaven’s wails fail to retain
beyond time, your name again
in every grain
every sip your name!
a lover‘s terrain
a holy campaign
truth and justice twain
from injustice and tyranny we abstain
say not tragedy! are you insane?
no loss only gain
their claims,
how inhumane
with you we remain
our Mawla Hussain
all else mundane
our heart’s breathe:
Ya Hussain
Ya Hussain

A Dharma Tale

What’s the matter
What’s the matter
Am I the one to break your heart?
Am I the one who tore you apart?
You stole my heart
Did I steal yours?
But
I am not one who breaks hearts
I am not one
who departs
I am not one
who begins then starts
I am not one
who claims this art
I love and love until death do us apart
This game Shams plays
I despise it
Deny it
Abhor it
and ask my muse
Do we submit or amplify this?
Do we flow or fantasize this?
Energize me
While I Eulogize you
Tantalize me
While I analyze you
Poetize me
While I glorify you
Allocate me
While I abdicate you
Subjugate me
While I aggravate you
Relocate me
While I sabotage you
Hypnotize me
While I magnify you
Quantify me
While I calculate you
Sanctify me
While I aromatize you
Magnetize me
While I agonize you
Tranquilize me
While I scandalize you

This ancient sacrament
a holy grail
A dharma tale
of two split hearts
ruminating
day and night
seek alleviation
from hallucinations
separation
two worlds apart
a fabrication
where time and space
have no place
heart in heart
a violation
this accusation
Affront to our destination
an Arabian Night’s fascination
Laila and Majnu’s consummation
a mindful lotus visualization
karmic tantric felicitation
mystical supreme realization
of light and dark meditation
just stop this drama
and still your self
manifest me within yourself.

Longing is Remembrance

Do you think
that this heart misses not?
our heart to heart talks, whispers and ocean breath exchange
if every moment is remembrance
then we are in constant ziker
no separation on the path where moments spent in longing
this is truth
longing is remembrance
longing for a beloved
who mirrors Divine love
the mirror who appeared
seeking no permission
privy to my heart
aware of sirr and khaafi
do you think I have forgotten
that sirr between us two?
never in a lifetime..now bask in my heart
I’ve already experienced your warmth, your gaze and touch
I’m here to stay
It’s how we interpret love
that causes us to question and doubt
the heart is a witness to what the mind knows not
remember me
and I remember you

Enchanting Poet of Heartbeats

I choose dissolution over mere existence. So do you. We One

Read between invisible words
Sip the silence of secret heartbeats
Silence privy to itself
Promised to keep its doors locked
Except for the one who holds the key
to this inner chamber where sirr ferments
A game of hearts and beats

That voice
Sings a thousand and one songs
Listen to it
As you listen to the reed
Separated from source
It sings all day
and night
The nightingale has become dumb
As the moon seeks the sun
this burning heart seek thee
awaiting to eclipse
to catch a glimpse
the entire cosmos await this day
a dance of heaven and earth
That voice
Sings a thousand and one songs
Listen
Listen to the reed
Separated by source
It yearns all day
and night
The ocean has silenced itself

Every night
Eclipse me with your light
Blind me by your sight
