True Love Illuminates Truly - love, avalanches, floods and the whirling dervishes

1.      Tenacious
Yea, I may be tenacious,
But it is easy tenacity when you
Are carried by a mighty flood
Roaring down the side
Of a high mountain!


Love affects different people differently. For some, love is all about falling down the side of a hill or mountain like a flood or an avalanche. So you get bruised, beaten and broken. Then you climb that mountain again. For others, love can make them whirl. No bruises or broken bones here, just the drawing of light-threads through the blandness of the cosmos, as even your shadow illuminates the gloomiest corner of the human experience. For true love illuminates truly... 

This is my first ever sketch with white ink on black paper. I hope you like it.

Have a lovely Sunday, sunshine.

wa min Allah at-taufiq

Hate has no place in Islam
Love will show the Way
