Water & Air, Day & Night

Peace, one and all…

Water & Air, Day & Night

You are the thrill of water
on a day of fiery heat,
and You are the taste of air,
dancing joyfully upon the morning breeze.

You are the warmth of the sun,
after a night of cold anxiety
and yet, You are the night itself,
covering the world with veils of intimacy.

You are all these things,
and yet none of them.
O You Who are Gentle beyond all understanding
embrace us with Your mercy once more.

 Abdur Rahman September 2009
