In Your Remembrance

in your remembrance

I was made aware

of how long before

you remembered me

I know not you

by sight or sound

but through

this remembrance

of your essence

a heart to heart

this peculiar affinity

a knowing from eternity

you appeared formless

your name was shown

etched upon your manuscript

It’s cover red sulfur

containing the contained

from a chain of masters

(The Ishraqiyyun)

This repeated remembrance

a surreal consciousness

of art and artisan

engraving my heart

with your name

repeatedly echoing

as Laila to every Majnun

that’s all I know

you by name

in this presence

of the unknown you

I continue to remember

as you continue

to remember me

Dedicated to Shaikh Khalid Al Baghdadi

You Told me About Love

You have a natural tendency to stand out wherever you appear

and while standing out 

I realized it wasn’t you 

only your light

which shines so bright

You told me about love

You told me about me

about we 

that place in absence of I 

Disassociate as Giver 

We are simply sharing gifts

that are given

It was given

to be given

more shall be given

to those who keep giving 

Summoned by the Cube

Summoned

by the Cube

on a full moon effulgence 

to pay homage to her grandson

a disheveled arrival 

at the feet of Jalal and Qadir

taking refuge in an ancient chain 

a pledge witnessed Al Mujtaba

by order of Al Muntazir

This crucification

A resurrection  

Death to life

Life to death

I desired to access your being

so I studied your words

they revealed what your lips failed to convey

As Moses upon Tur, I seek not presence

rather your words 

through what You revealed 

upon tablets and parchment 

This revelation as love letters to every beloved apparent and secret

I desired to access your beloved

So I studied her words

Essence, My Concern

essence

my concern

not your form, or even name

this awareness time eternal

a language beyond words

transmission without sound

this love unconditional 

an affinity without association 

a friendship like no other 

a fraternity without a lodge

an invisible matrix

light work beyond borders

a spiritual collective

Love is The Law

the Guide seeks you

come as you are

A Magnificent Unveiling 

Our independence 

became dependent 

in totality 

wholly 

to reflect one other

deciphering patterns

when randomness failed

a language unveiled 

where words betrayed 

a magnificent unveiling 

these pages silenced 

your absence in equation

nothing revealed 

my being depends

upon our existence 

I seek reflection 

in every moment 

where breaths exchange

I inhale only to exhale 

You
