over Iman-lit tents they lay

thawing blankets”

“As the soil begs for moisture – just enough to suffice the roots
As the roots plead for minerals – just enough to sprout the green
As the green offers oxygen
              The human coughs out what the plant welcomes in.”

Humans breathe out Carbon Dioxide which plants absorb in to provide Oxygen to the air.

What little thanks we give to those who love to share.


“A corroding leaf
An intangible sign of existence protrudes below
A shadow – prostrating. “

“Have they not considered what things Allah has created? – How their shadows turn round, from the right and the left, prostrating themselves to Allah, and that in the humblest manner” ~ 16:48
