spring night
Fellow blogger Eliza Waters summed it up so nicely when she wrote about Ihsan’s poetry back in September 2014. I still miss his soulful offerings reminiscent of Rumi.

Follow the above link to read more of his posts … or better still, purchase his anthology from Amazon.com.

This poem seemed perfect for the gentle spring nights at this time of year.


A Gentle Spring Night

I walked on a gentle spring night
I saw a swimming star glide through the sky
It gazed at me in mid-flight, saying
Walk in the Light

I walked on a gentle spring night
I saw a dancing rose bloom a fresh smile
It greeted me in swaying, saying
Walk in Peace

I walked on a gentle spring night
I felt a gentle breeze brush by my ear
Whispering in still silence, saying
Walk in Truth

I walked on a gentle spring night
My soul came alive seeing God everywhere
Commanding me, in the gentle spring night

To walk in Love
