Poetry, U.K. (Iraq)
I am an Iraqi-born British Bahá´í (born 1960), grew up in the UK, and
have travelled to several countries, including a spell in the Far East
The words of the poem, Journey's End, were inspired during a study
circle of the Ruhi course, and are dedicated to my Bahá´í brethern in
Iraq. They describe the nature of the soul, its relationship to
Baha'u'llah, and its journey through the Spiritual Worlds of God.
The poem, Forty Long Years, was inspired by Dan Seals's, 'We Are One
Family' song. I dedicate this poem to World Unity and World Peace.
Any further ideas or suggestions of my poems would be greatly
appreciated. I hope one day someone can suitably turn them into songs
(if they are good enough). Contact me and I can email other poems to you.
The spirit of man
A wayfarer exhilarated Elated
But never forgotten
The shores of His mercy and Benevolence
An eternal sanctuary
Celestial habitation for a heavenly dove
Soaring into the mystic realms of Sanctity
The King of Kings on the crown of Majesty
Re-creates the heavens and the Earth
Resplendent in a new glory
Heavenly hosts greeting, welcoming
for a journey
