The Wheel: Poem by Nimah Ismail Nawwab

The wheel’s turning

shadows love, lust, passions of this world

as it moves in a kaleidoscope of tumbling shards

the illuminated soul

glistens within the circle of existence

as the music of the other realm

unheard and unseen by others

fills the soul with unbound  joy

The empty threshold of this momentary station

is for once filled with golden lights

converging for once, converging

converging

The spokes of the wheel

lie at rest

the merging lights run off shaded shadows

and the circle is complete

is complete.
