This Pen

I used to like this pen the best But all is flux, including this. For words and letters This is the one. It has more art As well as fun. But, to make a point That's very fine, One needs a pen That's fine of line. © 2004 Shamsuddin Sign in to see full entry.

Empty Empty I have room for ALL. Empty Mind Will I die? Empty Heart Will I cry? Empty Senses Will I finally Hear? Finally See? Empty Form Will I Know The Formless? Empty Being Will I Become Being, Itself? "Where is Shams?" " He has gone Home." © 2006 Shamsujim Sign in to see full entry.

Kultivating Kindness, Karla

And, when finally, I saw That more then Respect, Kindness, was needed from me; How to be kind Is the question, Not, when. Who can perfect Kindness When trying to Serve The Judge Would it be kind to say: "Judgment imprisons Love In its knowing box, and... Thereby, knows nothing!" Or, kinder still, to say nothing And by overlooking, Slip free again Into the afternoon sun. For I know It is not kind To allow or let myself Be hung on Any judgment, Save God's, alone. © 2004 Shamsuddin Sign in to see full entry.

One Hundred Monkeys

Five Hundred Monkeys Lived in Peace On a South Pacific Isle One day, Imo, a New Mom, Began to wash her sandy sweet potato In a nearby stream. Soon she taught her daughter To do the same. Then, five neighbors joined the game. But here is what we can't explain: One day, quite suddenly, All the Tribe was washing food. And so were all the same species, On Other Isles: A Noosphere that quite beguiles. © 2006, ShamsuJim Sign in to see full entry.

Cognative Dissonance

My mind has succummed To the wine of fear. My Heart responds in swift defence, Closing down and pulling in. Thus protected The Flame of Love Remains kindled Yet, hidden C. 2006 ShamsuddinJim Sign in to see full entry.

I Went Walking Among the Breezes

I went walking among the breezes, Listened to the trees dancing To this evening's drummers. Behold the majesty of this quiet mystery And give thanks! For Silence, Herself would bring Forth Her Secrets. A whisper here A whisper there. Surely this path I walk Leads on Toward The One. C. 2004 Shamsuddin Sign in to see full entry.

They Say I have Been Hard on You

You told me that you felt wanting Under my keener observations. "Not enough," the words you spoke. "Want to Please;" "Yet, I have MY Ways." "We are not different; We are One," I sighed. "Be not attached to pleasing And be my Holy Bride." In Life's Eternal Measure There is no room for pride. You are a golden treasure, A prize of Love's Creation. In Peace, we now abide.

Practice in Public

There will always be a place For withdrawing into inner prayer. To practice Presence in the silent Protection of your Inner Intention Is Blessing, indeed! Yet, Hafiz must ask, "Toward what end?" "Toward the One, In every moment, On each breath," You say, without a thought. Hafiz says, Today, step out your door With the prayers upon your Heart. Let your silent lips Mouth the Names of God! Let your prayer be constant As you read the Daily Times. Be a steady voice for God In this crazy world. ©... Sign in to see full entry.

People Watching

She smiled behind the veil of tears That infects us all. It feels like the deepest hunger Of our starving Hearts. Who, among us has not felt The bitter-sweet longing Deep in their chest? And, Who has not smiled That same knowing smile As a sweetness rose To fill our conscious Being. Sign in to see full entry.

In the Silence between the notes, In the empty space between, The letters and the words, In that moment between the breaths, In the blink of the eyes, In the stillness That is within and Without, In the present, now moment: Just here, Now There, The Miracle Happens Anew! © 2004 ShamsuddinJim Sign in to see full entry.
