I am the rain,
you are the storm.

From our love,
flowers are born.

How could you claim to know me
if you haven't even scratched my heart's surface?

Who says words are merely sounds?
You prove it not to be true.
Poetically, I'm hypnotized
Logically, I'm screwed.
Share more where that came from
I want to go there, too.
Let me dive into your well of words
I don't want to re-surface without you.
Your words weave jasmine in my hair
your flow strokes my cheek.
The passion in your prose,
I swear it makes me weak
Some won't understand,
they think this is physical,
they can't get deep.
Tell the world and they'll see
the purity in your enlightened speech.

Jewels of wisdom drip from your core
stories form like art.
Tell me more
for if you don't,
my heart will tear apart.

Perfumed odes,
lyrical lullabies
bring tears of wonder to this lover's eyes.

Truth be told,
I can't resist.
This is why I exist.

Wrap me in.
You dwell in my heart,
deep within.

Just sayin'.

The world is three days:
As for yesterday, it has vanished, along with all that was in it.
As for tomorrow, you may never see it. As for today, it is yours, so work in it.

-Imam Hassan al-Basri-
Does money upset the hearts of learned men ?

He answered,

"men whose hearts are changed by money are not learned''
-Imam Abu Hamid Al Ghazali-

"We may have different religions, different languages, different colored skin,
but we all belong to one human race."
-- Kofi Annan
morning meditations
fresh energy
clear mind breeds clear reflections
eyes closed
the waves of deep breathing
wash away my thoughts like sand from the shore
this is where i'm meant to be
flute softly crying in my ear
"be still"
