POEMS OF RAMADAN - EPISODE 2

in #ksi4 years ago

STREET

Straight path: thin and thin
siratal mustaqim - long and sharp
An unblocked path
by my eyes - eyes always amazed
and blind to things

Way forward and deviate
To the right is full of resistance, endless
To the left thirsty identity, lost meaning
The road that keeps worrying is inflamed

The detour seemed to be able to dodge
From the fate of destiny
From the nadir
Where is the wide and definite path going downstream?

7 Ramadan 1439 H

TOWARDS

Towards the fields I bring hoes and machetes
Where is the parasite and the weeds?

Towards the forest I see a number of weapons
Weeding limbs and hunting animals

To the sea accompanied by various fears
Not against sharks, just catching snails

Toward Your House carries the past
The set of sin forms a dead end
Allow these soft prayers to compose new maps

CONSCIENCE

Conscience - either made of what
It could not be touched by the surgeon's hand
Except for the scarlet red wet blobs

Conscience binds the relationship between me
and You. But the soul rope is getting slack
after so many years

Conscience taken over by language, represented metaphor:
The quietest voice,
the source of truth light,
pure gesture whisper

Conscience is slowly fighting
persuasion, reject the image, advocate
Purpose, restore sanity

THEN

Then is the future
Which I have never ordered
With dark colors and anxiety

Then they arrived
With questions
What kind of trail I left behind

Then in a string of consciousness
There is a prayer that goes beyond the number of merjan
Asking for You: what I need

10 Ramadan 1439 H

LISTEN

Listen for a close scream first
After that are Palestine and Rohingya

Listen to your sister's voice right now
But maybe your enemy's opinion is right

Listen to your own heartbeat
Do not be busy with bomb seconds on your back

Listen to the whisper of the air and the exclamation of light
Two things that do not require an ear

Listen to Azan as a call
Before the call of parting to you

11 Ramadan 1439 H

SOUND

Sound can incarnate knowledge in books
I want to read in the name of humanity

The sound may come from ghosts in mind
Can I distinguish it from revelation?

Sound soft and loud, which one should I trust?
Because lie is sweeter than sugar

Voice after sound came and went
Slowly I became deaf
