  1. Butterflies
    A poem

    Why do you stay in your cocoons…

    For you are green and purple butterflies…

    Your heart is stiff with separation…

    How will you fly far and wide?…

    Guidance from Allah beckons you..

    But you have sunglasses on…

    You want to fly in circles of suffering..

    How long… oh how long?…

    Spreading not wings.. but grief…

    You killed a child with your thousand eyes…

    How will you set her free?…

    Your mind is full of vibration…

    How will you attract Juliet?…

    If you fly with rumi and qayyim…

    Juliet…. Juliet…

    Why do you run from shaitaan and dajjal?…

    You only run from yourself..

    Face it… slay it… convert it….

    With Love… bereft of regret…

    Respect all butterflies…

    Whether black red white or grey…

    Allah does not want to trap you…

    You do it to yourself…

    A butterfly is always searching for light…

    The thunder claps divert you…

    See how you flutter in fright!…

    Oh little butterfly!…

    You amuse me….

    What eyes cannot behold till infinity….

    God replaces with trinkets a pirates delight….

    “Ya Allah why hast thou forsaken me?! “…

    Resurrect from sleep of mummification….

    Step into the light!…

    Adonai!… YHWH!… 3 IN 1…..

    No…

    ONE!

    The river’s are many…

    The paths have colours…

    The Quran sheds light! Sheds light!…

    A butterfly can’t die… Never will… no chance…

    They only surender their wings…

    And when all is ablaze…

    Sit back and amaze…

    Dance… commune….

    sing!…

    Hosanna in the highest…

    OM………….

    A dance of heaven and hell…

    Why do you stay in your cocoons butterflies…

    Why oh why?…

    That’s hell…

  2. I am a student in South Korea and I am a huge x 100 fan of your work!! I first ran into ‘carnet de voyage’ (translated version) and I reeaaalllly loved your style :-) I bought the original English version of Blanket and Habibi afterwards! loved them both!!
    It’s such a shame that I just saw this post… I would’ve gone to the festival if I knew this earlier ;-( (Actually I found this blog only a few minutes earlier! lol ) Anyways I hope you had a good time in Bucheon!
