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.
