Ya Habib!

Light upon light! O let me not collapse!
The banquet is set and the guests arrive
And I who thought to beg the streets for scraps
Have been called to feast inside and revive.
I sit rejoicing in the company
Wondering how it is words unspoken
Could carry so clear such sweet harmony;
This love is from no mere paltry token!
Before there was before you were beloved,
Come take your place among those whose hearts sing,
We all had loved before we ever loved.
Before certainty and the promised spring
There is a drink I wait to taste fully –
O let the sweet goblet be passed to me!

    Eid Mubarak Ya Haji –
    Soul’s reflection maturing in poignant delicacy i see,
    All is well with breathtaking sincerity for thee;
    May Allah continue to love and guide this purity in you,
    Gentle colours of the day and night constantly connecting with you.

    Dear W.Troubadour
    I really rejoice
    sitting in your
    company of poetic
    fragrants :

    Our true face
    never speaks
    in language of duality
    thick masks of nihilism
    engulf the new age

    In fear of colored others
    suppressing sacred voices
    the assembly of puppets
    disguising renaissance

    Tame and ride
    the tiger of time
    julius evola warned us
    or we will be eaten up

    No one lives his life
    when he missed the
    secret of the Yin of Beauty
    and the Yang of Majesty
    in Oneness of the Real
