In Memorium Poet of Light -The Master of Silence and Verse -A Special Tribute

The Master of Silence and Verse

In memorium of Sidi Daniel Abdal Hayy Moore April 19, 2016 – a day after he reunited with The One

 

His bowed kufiyyah-covered head led us

each verse, letter enunciated with

mahabbah, reverence, khushu ‘, taqwa,

beloved to his tongue, to his very being

transporting the welcoming home

into a prayer niche filled with anwar

His Malika the queen of his heart,

queen of his soul joining in the binding prayer

quiet utterances, tasabeeh and salawat

concluding the prayer to The One

 

The slave of the Ever-Living, Abdal Hayy

cocooned in Divine Love

as he stood in his creative space filled

with his beloved work, art, music, books

adorned with images of spirits of light

sharing tales brimming with wisdom

smiling eyes alight with blessed, overflowing joy

tapping out music of words and songs

 

His maqam, his station

rising and ever clear to those blessed

to be in his sphere

his songs, words, silences

serving His Mahboub

His niyyat, intentions constantly set

infusing and permeating his inner horizon

reflecting the seeker’s journey

a seeker crossing lands afar and near

a seeker whose essence resides in sacred sites

a seeker soaring in the heavens of the unseen

a seeker delving the depths of asrar, mysteries

joining the Caravan of the Blessed.

 

Abdal Hayy immersed in the Light of the Ever-Living

Set free,

       free,

         free

 

Ecstatic eyes, euphoric spirit

forever encased in the arms

            of

 

 

The Merciful, Ever-Living One.

Poet Daniel Abdal-Hayy Moore’s latest ‘UNTIL THE VERY LAST BREATH’

Arabia Middle East Writing Poetry Youth Women

Daniel Abdal-Hayy Moore’s work, heard and written  – a new poem   http://ecstaticxchange.com/2015/02/09/until-the-very-last-breath/   

When we look at death’s door it
looks like nothing at all

Blank and featureless
a serious expression on a featureless

face that could be gazing across
empty desert or a crowded room

at a dark frail flower limp on its
stem or a king propped up on his

ermine pillows surrounded by wives and viziers
or at a wall as blank as itself

in front of unfathomable space
full of indifferent planetary matter

whirling to its own music

a camel sleeping by a tent-flap
waiting to be mounted for a month’s trek

a plane smoothly gliding twelve hours homeward

a mortally sick pre-teen boisterously
chatting with ten best-friend schoolmates

a lone spider waiting too long on an
unprofitable web in a dusty under-populated

corner

This side of the door is the
only side…
