“My soul drank of Your wine
And I became the sacred sinner
I am today.
When I sinned against you,
again and then again,
You looked the other way
My head did not bow five times a day;
But the moment it did,
You turned Your gaze
As though I’d never raised my head….”

This poem was written at the beginning of the Ramadhan Month. Many would know why…..
“When the day pulls on a splendid dark sheet,
Gladdened are the hearts who so yearned to meet.
Speckled with jewls and adorned with a pearl
Shall be the floor under their dancing feet.
When flames quench and embers give off their heat,
Silence plays a mournful sonorous beat.
In such silence they shall now dance and twirl
To the songs sweeter than the sweetest tweet.”
Can you hear the song of those narcissi
As they enthrall your gaze and dance and sway?
Your eyes are deaf and your ears blind to it,
Silence! Do not hark such songs if not fey.”

In Persian Literature,….
Narcissus (Narcissi – plural) = eyes.
Roses = Cheeks.
Violets = Hair.
Keep above information in context and visualize. I’m using dew-drops as tears.

“I felt my tongue restricted,
So I opened my pen’s lid.
I let my thoughts flow through ink
And I penned my thoughts candid.
An ode can articulate
And give tongue to my mute mind.
A silent mind can nourish
A Bouquet of words entwined.”
