Navyn Naran: "will you be mine on the journey to Mawla" and "Your Birthday"

 

will you be mine on the journey to Mawla?

will you be the tasbih bead next to  my bead
on the prayer to Mawla?
will you be the rainbow stripe next to my stripe
emanating from, rejoining the prism of Light that IS Mawla?
will you be the arm of one shell hinged on the other shell
surrounding the pearl of Mawla?
the hydrogen atom attracted to the other atom
both in force, toward the O of Mawla?
will you be the bee, longing for my flower
to take its honey to our Mawla?
will you be the deep brown eye created next to the other eye
around the Third Eye to Mawla?
will you be the exhalation of its inhalation,
in the  Eternal Breath of Mawla?
the perfect key for the burnished lock
on the Door to Mawla?
the rhythm of the rhyme spoken throughout Time
for the Love Song to Mawla?
the golden feather on the white turban
for the glory of Mawla?
the one footstep stepping with its next
on the eternal walk toward Mawla?
will you be mine?
will you be mine?
silently awakened, being born two souls
in this Oneness of Mawla?
will you look at me, as you first did
unperturbed, in the gentle meeting
the  hug, a Blessing from Mawla?

Your Birthday

I stand on a mountaintop and kiss the wind
and I thank God for space

I stand on a mountaintop and listen to the quietness
and I thank God for sound

standing on this mountaintop, squinting in the snowlight
I thank for God for sunshine

standing on a mountain top, seeing glistening, winding rivers,
I thank God for nurturance

standing on my mountaintop, I swirl in dance
and I thank God for movement

standing on this mountaintop, I breathe in Nature,
and I thank God for home

standing on a mountaintop, I am calm and in peace,
and I thank God for my mind

skipping on my mountain top, I sing to the breeze
and I think God for life

laughing on the mountaintop, a skillful bird glides
and I thank God for freedom

spinning on my mountaintop, I am in rhythm with my feet
and I thank God for my body

lying on the mountaintop, I feel a soul’s heartbeat
and I thank God for my being

standing on my mountain top, I sense you
and I thank God for Your Birth

  1. Both these poems are very good. I too like to write poems like you do, but I did not have a topic but after reading your poems I think I have a good title for a poem.
    Thank you and Ya Ali Madad.
