Stop Hiding

moon you

where art thou

this sun seeks you frantically

in the sky day and night

as she rises and sets

to catch a glimpse

you appear to all but her

stop hiding.

the sun burns for her moon

the entire existence

watches this dance

of hide and seek

as the moon seeks the sun

the sun seeks the moon

watch as they eclipse

not knowing who is who

stop hiding.

sun demands her moon

to dance

all night long

as she burns

making fire jealous

as she gazes

as their eyes meet

making fire jealous

For Every Love Claimant

love is beyond jealous

of every love claimant

I warn every Ashiq & Mashuq

keep your love silent

as love is jealously listening

she banishes all suspects

to the heartless desert

into cellars unknown

into bottomless wells

keep your most prized love secret

reveal not I revealed this

I pray she was asleep

while I scripted this secret

burn this letter after your eyes

drink every letter

engrave this secret upon thy heart

and keep it a secret forever untold

between you and Laila

Bhudda in Arabia

we met Bhudda in Arabia

amidst desert ruins

he traveled with us to Ganges

so to distribute gifts from the Hijaz

accompanied by Jilani’s daughter

we gave all we had

an order came to climb

Mount Shakti

surpassing pilgrims

we ascended to her peak

faster than lightening

we arrived

a Red Sea summoned us

to swim with dolphins

an ageless monk

looked my way

filling these eyes

she uttered Jesus

swim till you drown

annihilation a must

a great ship arrived

hauling us on board

upon it twelve avatars

the nobles of Arabia

to whom we bowed

basking in their light

we boarded a disc

resembling a full moon

desiring the golden dome

mirroring the sun’s glory

eyes downcast, we descended

to kiss his munificent feet

frozen in time-embedded in stone

we journeyed outward

to intergalactic worlds

these parallel dimensions

we flew with those who

bask in light – day and night

immersed in the most

illuminated being

a queen of Sirius unveiled herself

knowing none but sound

she played like none

we travelled onwards

with a caravan

drunk in ecstatic love

we arrived

a desolate planet

echoed our hymns

as we sung poetic offerings

I recalled Saturn

we rushed to her river

sipping love’s drink

in ruby studded goblets

When We Heal Me

a reoccurring

theme

which leaves us

distraught;

the lament of humanity

a cry so deep

echoing from Adam’s fall

the great whale screams

beneath the ocean bed

she carries our heart’s pain

her tears; the sea

her weeping; a grand plea

all will heal

when we heal me

Rite of Passage

You are here
we are family
you are safe
you are loved
love brought you here
love brought us here
love is here
love is real
heartbroken
mandatory on the path
this is the rite of passage
this is the path of love
love madly
destroy yourself in love
be broken
shatter to pieces
you gave all for love
so did we
we are here
to remember
our reality

Honored Soul

Loved ones
we take for granted
as we know without doubt
their love is eternal
and in this knowing
we forget to express
loud or bold
honoring loved ones
and stories that wish to be shared
is honoring a soul
honoring life
honoring love

Beneath The Ocean Bed

a reoccurring
theme
which leaves us
distraught;
the lament of humanity
a cry so deep
echoing from adam’s fall
the great whale screams
beneath the ocean bed
she carries our heart’s pain
her tears; the sea
her weeping; a grand plea
all will heal
when we heal ‘me’
