Life Returns

By Dawud Wharnsby Ali

 

The earth is hard, Soil is cracked, bleached and blistered. Trees bend, withered and weary.
Ground gasps, dusty and dry.
Allah hears and the rain comes wetting and washing the world, Flushing and flooding the clay,
Spilling and splashing, Life returns.
Allahu Akbar! (Allah is great!)
We are the cracked earth, The thirsty, dirty spirit of man. If we gasp, we will be heard.
Forgiveness falls like rain on our hands.
Allah hears and the rain comes Wetting and washing the world, Flushing and flooding the clay,
Spilling and splashing, Life returns.
Allahu Akbar! (Allah is great!)
