Simple Sainthood

Know O friend,
in your very heart resides
the essence of simple sainthood
of which, we are all
God willing - capable.

You have the seed of possibilities
to be transformed
into a saint;
to be taken away
at Beloved's gate.

Arrive O friend, arrive!

To be a friend of God
there are no
restrictions imposed.

Dedicated to Sufi Daniel Abdal-Hayy Moore.

Inspired by the introduction of Daniel Abdal-Hayy Moore's poetry book where its written: COATTAILS OF THE SAINT - is a collection of poems which chase after the coattails of sanctity, in this world with its “meanings set up as images” (a Sufi definition of what we take around us as reality), and those souls living among us right now and forever who have had bestowed upon them that dimension of sanctity which sets them apart while making them at the same time true human beings. Imagination has given these poems a “saintly” thread, with no particular saint in any traditional pantheon meant, but rather that essence of simple sainthood of which we are all (God willing) capable.
