Salat (at Al Noor Mosque)

Here we see the sun set
each and every day
the full moon rise with our naked eyes
and you see nothing

you put a certain sadness
inside of us
and it is there
fusing in the furnace
of our hearts

In choosing love over hate
may we learn to extend this love
even to you
you lost and wayward soul

we pray for your heart to break
to let whatever little light is left
transform you
and perhaps one day you too will see
the silver light
illuminating
everything
