Princess of Dreams


Dedicated to the  young girl I saw studying in the vicinity of Al-Agsa mosque-  May, 2013

Timidly I stretch my arms out
I bow my head in humble awe

Kissing those delicate hands
Wiping sorrow off your tender eyes

O… soul of my soul
Delight us with your dreams ignore death around

No to submissiveness no to being idle

Plant seeds of hope inside of us… lilies
Baby smiles
Spectra of love
Longing poetry
Celebrations of glory… huge grins

On the cusp of homeland scatter your winning laughter
Almond Blossom … fragrant roses …  heart beats … tears of love … and stars

    The Agony and Ecstasy of Divine Discontent : The Moods of Rumi
    From the poems of JALAAL UD DIIN MUHAMMAD BALKHI
    RUMI. New translations by Farsi scholar Fereydoun Kia, edited by Dr Deepak Chopra. Read by Sonja Sohn

    In the orchard and rose garden
    I long to see your face.
    In the taste of Sweetness
    I long to kiss your lips.
    In the shadows of passion
    I long for your love.
    Oh! Supreme Lover!
    Let me leave aside my worries.
    The flowers are blooming
    With the exultation of your Spirit.
    By Allah!
    I long to escape the prison of my ego
    And lose myself
    In the mountains and the desert.

    These sad and lonely people tire me.
    I long to revel in the drunken frenzy of your love
    And feel the strength of Rustam in my hands.
    I’m sick of mortal kings.
    I long to see your light.
    With lamps in hand
    The sheikhs and mullahs roam
    The dark alleys of these towns
    Not finding what they seek.
    You are the Essence of the Essence,
    The intoxication of Love.
    I long to sing your praises but stand mute
    With the agony of wishing in my heart.
