Ya Ghumbatul Khadra

Ya Ghumbatul Khadraa
Ya Ghumbatul Khadraa

Bi Isme  Aba Zahara

Englighten me with nadhara*

Speak to me in hadara*

Connect me with thy silsila*

Ya Ghumbatul Khadraa
Ya Ghumbatul Khadraa

Charm me thy mahabba*

Enchant me like that shajarah*

Embrace me as an aashiqah*

Drown me in thy Khamaraa*

Ya Ghumbatul Khadraa
Ya Ghumbatul Khadraa

Protect me as your itaraa*

Enslave me like a royal shah

Captivate me like an abida

Command me as your khalifa

Ya Ghumbatul Khadraa
Ya Ghumbatul Khadraa

Bi AyaatuT Tatheera*

Grace me with hubb al Fatima

Transform me into Khadima

Bi Fadhlul Sayeda Zainaba

Ya Ghumbatul Khadraa
Ya Ghumbatul Khadraa

I see you are the Green Kisa’

Which covered the Holy Itara

Mohammed, Ali, Fatima

Hassana was Hussaina

Ya Ghumbatul Khadraa
Ya Ghumbatul Khadraa

For all creation they are safeena*

From me to you in Madina

Blessings upon HabeebAllah

Who rests beneath the Khadaraa

Ya Ghumbatul Khadraa
Ya Ghumbatul Khadraa

Drink!

Drink

 

You’ve asked to drink from the cup of Love

Now let it pour from high above

Savor every sip my friend

You’ll never run to an end

Prepare to fall deep in love

Abducted and placed in a secret cove

You’ll toss and turn

You heart shall burn

You’ll slip and fall

And know none at all

Your body too shall be set aflame

A fiery blaze-yet who’s to blame?

Once you’ve joined the inner tavern

Sip with His friends

Need not beg, borrow, lend

When your cup is almost empty

It shall be filled again aplenty

You’re’ sick in love!

A contagious malady from above

A drunkard

An addict

Whatever you wish, call it

The only way to free yourself

Is to be forever in love.

(Aug 09)

Oh Beloved One

With every glance I see You

your  reflection through all

I see not what is apparent but You, the reality behind all that exists

I try to look elsewhere, yet only to find You once more

Shall I utter that You are here, within and without, all around and everthing shines forth your Light?

Call me heretic, but my eyes lie not!

Call me a mushrik, but my heart lies not!

Call me a lunatic, yet I am insanely mad!

Call me as you wish, for my only wish -your Face!

The Light of Yusef

The Light of Yusef

Yousef’s body thrown into a well

Zulaikha’s heart thrown into a bottomless well called love

Yusef a Prophet

Zulaikha a plain mortal

Yusef was jailed

Zulaikha was blamed

His crime, innocence

Her crime, Love

“I fell in love with light

Through Yusef, I saw habib and through Habib I saw Him

This light took over my being

My heart melted

My body reacted

Today they perceive me as a sinner

Tomorrow I shall be with the lovers

For I await the day where the promise to be with those you love shall be fulfilled.”

Respiratory Love

Respiratory  Love

Take turns

Exchange breath

Exhale

Inhale

Absorb

Speak through breath

Hear none but breath

Express your heart through breath

Desire only breath

Exhale

Inhale

Absorb

Respiratory Love is our game my friend!

Breathe into Me

Breathe In Me

Oh spirit of my wine

Breathe into me

Breathe so I may inhale your spirit

I crave silence and only desire breath

All else diminshed

Your breath is the carrier

the essence of your spirit;

the wine for my soul.

 

Worry Not

Your Doorstep

I shall sit by your door
Like an unworthy beggar
I shall remain at your doorstep
Forever and ever
I shall wait till your doors open
I promise to remain silent
I shall utter not a word or gesture
I shall diffuse in your presence
I am in Love!
And you are the cause!
My only desire?
A glimpse of your face
I swear this love is Divine
Must I admit and proclaim to all;
this love I speak of is earthly.
