Poem: Thus Spoke the Sun

There exists a lake of divinity in all;
This lake deep and existential in some;
This lake shallow and drying up in some;
There exists estuary of deeds in all;
This fills and empties the lake;
Bow your head, behead your ego;
This God will settle in your heart,
Your best friend moving in for eternity.

From Zafeera Kassam’s Poems for Hazar Imam: Always & Forever
