The Straight Path

Alhamdulillah, another poem, written in the time when the house is quiet and I look back on the day and take account. What did I do well? What did I fall short in? How have I grown? What have I learned? What can I do better? Sometimes the brevity of poetry is the easiest and clearest way to gather the meaning of the moment and hold it out to share.

The victory is with Allaah Alone

a shimmering light


from the corner

of your eye

a snowflake

fleeting moment

of wholeness on

your mittened hand

a fragrance

a sigh of scent

dissipates on the

cool night breeze

what has been

what is

what will be

 what could be

woven with

infinite mercy

boundless wisdom

a master plan

each moment

a breath

a gift to be

cherished, well spent

I walk this path

in thankfulness,


surety of truth


 on this,

Allaah’s Straight Path

in light.
