A Ghazal of Love and Purity inspired by
With Great Blessings from the Imam
The Poet Seer feels the Wings of Protection
With a noble Heart & strong Mind
The Poet Seer struggles to apprehend the Truth
With a bowl of Muscat grapes & sweet stringed Lyre
The Poet Seer sings Ghazal to purify his Soul.
With words and music to express his devotion
The Poet Seer charms all who listen
With the kindliness of strangers and Holy men
The Poet Seer is helped along the dark Path
With a low Sun in a high Sky
The Poet Seer walks toward his Knowing
With only a thin Kellim & the Koran for warmth
The Poet Seer sleeps well under the curve of a starry sky
With Love, Truth and Beauty in his Heart
The Poet Seer seeks to achieve his completeness.
