My Friend And Protector

Hope is the spirit
that never dies
except by returning
and shattering
all sensory veilings
and self made barriers
as prophet Joseph says:
‘O creator of heaven and earth
you are my friend protector
in this world and the Next’

’You are my prison
and my garden
You are my exile
and my kingdom’
Maulana Rumi blessed
by a whiff of Divine Perfume
humbly said: I am dust!

Powerful, moving bit of poetry, my favorite lines were these, ’You are my prison and my garden You are my exile and my kingdom’ I loved the dualism. And I thank you for posting this so that I might read it. Peace, L&T
