Flowers - Ma Rabu Ma'asecha

Flowers
A revelation of
H-shems love;
All encompassing
merkava.

Fragrance
palpably stiring my soul
Lovingly prodding me closer
To His presence
in this world.

Smiles
Illuminating the earth
with beaming color;
red lipstick
blossoming kisses.

Love
exquisitely displayed
Dabbling the earth.
Embodying One
Stamens and petals
surrounding pistil;
masculine and feminine.

Embracing the subtle
yet mind-boggling affection
with all my senses
Feeling gratitude.
Makif

Love descending
and ascending
Encircling
Transcending.
