Cup O Jo

Cup O Jo My morning cup, a wakeup call to a new day of blessing light. My morning jo, a blessing in itself. My first morning cup of black magic gives hope for this day. Thank you, Creator for this sacred bean. Thank you for the ones that first learned to roast them. May my first sip each morning, remind me of Thy Love, O Holy Precious One. © 2018 Shamsujim Sign in to see full entry.

Just Woke Up

Just Woke Up Slept more the usual last night. Guess I needed to catch up. But I am in a fog So, maybe I got too much sleep. I do think that sleep is overrated. There will come a day when we sleep no more. Or... some say we will sleep forever. Shams does not know about these things. All I know is this: Until I commune with God this morning, the fog remains. © 2018 Shamsujim Sign in to see full entry.

Who You Know

Who You Know They say it is who you know that counts. I say it IS who you know that counts; As well as who knows you. Do you know your Creator? Hu knows you. Do you spend time with this Holy One? It takes some time to know this One. Do you converse? Do you listen for a response? Shams says that to know this One is all. © 2018 Shamsujim Sign in to see full entry.

Druggie Are Are Just Generous to a Faukt

Druggies Are Generous Among my many friends, My druggies give the best hugs. They are generous to a fault. It is just that fault that gets them in trouble. Know when to say NO. share a beer or glass of wine; Share a cocktail, sweet strong. But maybe one is enough or perhaps two. Shams had a drink with love's daughter... that was enough for the rest of his Life. - © 2018 Shamsujim Sign in to see full entry.

I'm Happy Goodamnit!

I'm Happy, Goodamnit I am happy, Goodamnit. No I am more than that; I am joy-filled. some might even call me manic, and God knows I have been depressed. I can barely remember that state. I woke early Shams has already been to the tavern, the tavern of love-drunk dervishes. Those drunkards drank love's cup all night long. In two rounds, Shams caught up. Now, there is only raucous singing and dancing. No wonder I am blessed. © 2018 Shamsujim Sign in to see full entry.

Time for a Poem

Time for a Poem You know it is time for a poem when: Your soul begins to stir, and if ignored turns into an ache. Something growing deep in the darkest caves of your mind Yearns for the light of day. It will be born; help or get out of the way. After the anguish, the screams of pain; a child is born. In words lofty and low. Here is the expression of my soul yearning to be born. Now singing its freedom song. © 2018 Shamsujim © Sign in to see full entry.

How Does This Work?

How Does this Work? How does this work? I sit and decide to write this poem. I trust that there will be something there. I open to some mysterious inner voice. And just so, these words appear And I keep marveling; How does this work? © 2018 Shamsujim Sign in to see full entry.

Don't Go Back to Sleep

Don't Go Back to Sleep "The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you; Don't go back to sleep." -Rumi I love rising in the early morning hours Before the dawn. The silence blesses me. Even the Noosphere* is silent. I reach for my prayer beads And my flute. The silence is broken only by my praise: Alhamdulillah! All praise flows to God! I feel each bead Passing through my nimble fingers. On each swing of my breath, I lift my praises, My deepest concerns. And now I raise one friend On each in breath;... Sign in to see full entry.

Bowl for Jan 25
