Poetry Wrote Over Several Years on Spiritual, Religious, and Devotional Subjects.
To Ali Akbar Furutan
The lover died
serving the Cause of the Beloved,
and scattering the seeds of unity
Scarlet edged blossoms--
their dual toned petals open to the night,
and their sacred scents warming autumn's chill--
share the water of life
with apricot tinged gladiolus
and green leaf filler
stand in crystal vase
that is setting on a baby grand.
A picture of the ascended
smiles at us from the stage;
on each side of the enlarged photograph
of burgundy satin roses--
in glass vases--
set on white pedestals.
Accompanied by the scent of roses,
and the prayers of the Baha'is
Through all the worlds of God
blazoning the name of Baha'u'llah.
