|Longhair is wandering close to the flame. Crazy fella...|
I am not much for posting other people's poetry. But I do it sometimes (see posting entitled Lewis Carrol - Life, what is it but a dream - Click Here). Anyways, I was trawling through my old collection when I came across two poems that my friend, Longhair wrote to me some 7 years ago -
3 MARCH (2004)
Salam O’ intoxicated one!
Longhair has fallen into a cask of wine and is all wet, HaHa!
I have been made confused by his presence
And his leaving has me even more confused.
I am a moth playing by his candle and my wings are burnt!
4 MARCH (2004)
A sinner is come asking for mercy!
I am without faith, my amal is tainted by my ego
And I have many sins
But You are the Forgiver and Most Merciful.
So I come to Thee with the conviction that I am a sinner
And You are the Forgiver of sinners!
In the name of the Most Praised!
Well, I hope you like it, sunshine.
wa min Allah at-taufiq.
