To leave carbon footprints,
Long ago he wandered across
The desert of my heart,
Leaving behind diamonds
Twinkling like stars
In the night sky,
One was called Abu Bakar,
Another Omar, the third was Usman,
The fourth, Ali, Hassan, Hussein
And thereafer more
And more and
Prose is from current and untitled chapter. It is a flower from the lore of Sufis that the Companions of the Prophets, are like the stars in the desert twilight, follow any one of them, and surely he will lead you to the Prophet, to God, to Love.
So, I beg you, as one tired wanderer to another, look for the stars, high in the celestial sky, or in the closeness of your own heart... they are there, all of them.
For if God can be contained in the heart of a true believer, what more His Friends and Saints?!
