Words inspired by my friend Rafiah who lives in Pakistan..:)
Back in 2003
i had this lovely Oak Tree
with limbs and leaves that reached out far
into the sky of Allah..
and then a Hurricane named Ivan came
and took my beautiful Tree away
leaving only a dinosaur like broken skeleton..
that had to be taken away
only to leave a Stump and eventual Twig
that remained as memory
of my beloved tree….
But with adversity can come great diversity..
As the Twig grew into my beloved tree again..
and i let it grow free with friends of Blue Berry Bushes..
Small Privet Trees..
Flowered Vines growing up into the Branches
sharing Air with Leaves in sky of Allah free….
and Ivy growing down toward the Ground
and spreading out through the Ground of Allah as well…
Yes.. the Tree grows wider now instead of taller
with all the TREE’S friends
and provides a privacy in my backyard
that allows me to dance totally free with Allah
connecting to ALL my flesh and blood
as One force of me and Allah…free…:)
And this is how it works with us humans
as metaphor too..
As when we reach out to others
in hands of diverse Love..
the connections and meanings
of life in Love do grow…
in together Love…
the Unconditional Love of Allah
that connects all Peaceful Loving life….
And when we all Practice this FREE LOVE
OF DIVERSITY WITH EACH other..
putting it into Action of Unconditional Love..
the Kingdom of Heaven of Allah will arise..
in the ONE TRUE RELIGION
And for those of us
who practice it Now..
with all others…
The Kingdom of Heaven
is already ours…
NOw.. in Eyes of Allah’s
greatest gift to human..
Unconditional GIVING Love..
to ALL others…:)
Reaching out our limbs
and letting the leaves of Love
fall to others
where ever we go……
in Allah’s Unconditional Love….
