Eastern Skies

Peace, one and all…


Eastern Skies

Eastern skies dissolving
into gathering clouds of rain.
A storm wanders across the hills
above land hushed into silence.

A single cloud-parting remains,
a lingering hand of light
amidst the gloom,
like the last taste of summer.

Read the signs aright ibn al-sabil.
See the moment and know,
know the moment and live:
you yourself are those eastern skies.

Abdur Rahman, September 2009
