Kisses of Notes

Kisses of notes whetted my skin, tingled my senses, and I bobbed in rhyme,
But the dance was ephemeral and the music stopped.
Kisses of notes permeated through to the treasures of my heart and I met ecstasy:
We soared in a dance of flight,
I twirled with the gift of song,
And in its beauty,
In the sparkles of rhythym, I met the reality that is my Maker
And drank of the dance that is His Nourishment

Silent Din

Oh silent noise inside my head, oh distractful din
Stop your whispers, your distractors
Your suggestive sin
I yearn for quiet solace
I plea freedom from your banter
There's a world out there that remembers and sings submission's song
Stop, oh silent noise inside my head
Oh distractful din
Stop your whispers, your distractors
Your suggestive sin
Let me resonate the music of creation's rhyme
Subjugate you, I must, to reach The Sublime

Jihad

"Stop!", I said. "Enter not this sanctum with me, you are not worthy."
Yet covertly, steadfast to purpose you stole in with feline stealth in search of your prey.
I knelt in desire of submission, but you whisked up your ugly visage,
And obliterated my quest for union.
O, hateful pride! Against you I wage war.
You pollute the pristine waters that was this heart.
For your distractions and destructive whispers, I summon you to battle.
My sword may fall but a willing captive I pray I will not be.

Illusive Heaven and Hell

May we aspire to Your Bounty and drink of the rivers of Heaven
May we dread of Your Wrath and not cinder in the fires of Hell
And all the while may we remember Your Love and be guided by the infinite blessing that is Your Mercy
For Heaven and Hell are but detractors from our true purpose
And we shall only taste the honour of free men when we submit in love and gratitude
And act not out of intents of receiving or averting
But rather to celebrate Your Glorious Reality


This piece is based on a quote by Hadrat Ali, Radhi Allah Ta Ala Anhu,(note I could not verify this reference but liked the quote) : "There are people who worship Allah to gain His Favours, this is the worship of traders, while there are some who worship Him to keep themselves free from His Wrath, this is the worship of slaves, a few who obey Him out of their sense of gratitude and obligations, this is the worship of free and noble men"
