Blessed are the Peacemakers

The earth is the Lord’s
And all that is therein
Evolved in perfect symmetry
Bestowed on Adam’s kin

Cut no living wood
Plant again what you have taken
Blessed are the peacemakers
Blessed are the caretakers
The rest shall be forsaken

    Salaams, Irving

    I didn’t know that you’re also a poet, mashaAllah. I have to read the excerpt from your book, The Master of the Jinn, that I downloaded from Islamica. Take care and may your Ramadan be blessed.

    After reading the interview I searched your blog for your poetry and I’m glad I found this section.

    This is a beautiful fragment, that is complete and whole in my opinion. I will be checking back on your poetry section in the future.
