Poets Rumi, Ibn ‘Arabi and Khayyam

Studies of the night sky with rare comet flights;
Arabesque anatomy and medicine;
Belly-dancing; sorbet; The Arabian Nights;

If we search for peace perhaps we’ll share again.

Breathlessly we breathe
shun lover’s kiss of death
a close hug comforts none
grave world mulls end of life
in a heartbeat
