December 25, 2006


I kneel before Damascus rose

that has flowered within me

a spirit bloom from whom all forms

of love derive their sweet-scented

ounce of essence, healing verve


with my faith in her endless birthing might

I’m rooted in the spawning ground of love

in the garden of sufis and insurgent saints

as a small soul-searching herb without name


out of her supplication for sunny days

the green blood of faith flows in my veins

giving me the insight of a three-eyed nightingale

that grasps the secret of her sanguine soul.
