A Blessing On The Death Of The Beloved

In honor of  Maya Angelou ~ ~ ~
Though we need to weep your loss,
You dwell in that safe place in our hearts
Where no storm or night or pain can reach you.

Your love was like the dawn
Brightening over our lives,
Awakening beneath the dark
A further adventure of color. Continue reading

The One

Lovely to share another of Ihsan’s beautiful prayer poems.



You are the unknowable
Mystery so beautiful
Beyond imaginations
The Transcendent One!

Your rays are everywhere
glimmering all around me
Dwelling in my deepest heart
The Immanent One!

Your Grace pours down in floods
From an infinite heaven
Impossible to exhaust
The Merciful One!

King of the multiple worlds
Your kindness everlasting
Giving to those in need
The Generous One!

Dispeller of all darkness
Bestower of true wisdom
Bringer of the Light of Truth
The One Reality!

Overflowing compassion
Hearer of the heart praying
Remover of afflictions
The One who saved me!
