Marziyas Choice


Marziyas Choice
Originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1

marziya and my camera the best of friends
compatibilty of characters no rules to bend
adding a new dimension holistic healing
to make amends
broken down fences with a smile she mends
an oath of honor she spiritually defends
ya hussain a cry for peace
on the firmament of karbala suspends
tears of a 1400 year pain
ghame hussain
to tend
majlis matam
azadari
her first moharam
to attend
black clothes of mourning
the silence of her soul
unwept tears as it blends
kule yomin ashura
echoes of a shia angst
transcends
beyond a world without borders
as it extends
hussain is humanity
a global thought
of brotherhood of pain
portends
live like ali die like hussain
a message
within a message
with the fresh breath of her life she sends
hussainiyat a path to Allah it recommends
trampling yazidiyat
misguided terrorism
on the soul of Islam
a jehad
to be fought till the very end
