The first Ghazal I've completed.
|God comes to me at night bringing dreams of light,
A nightingale at dawn singing dreams of light.
What visions come when my body is at rest,
When my soul roams free igniting dreams of light..
Against the eastern mountains white clouds gather,
Bright seraphim are whispering dreams of light.
I feel dawn's tranquility embrace my mind,
Like clear lead crystal bells ringing dreams of light.
I rise in gratitude to greet a new day,
My devotions celebrating dreams of light.
