A Night Shadow in Arabia ii

She said:
it was not right
how you left Harare
in such a great flight
that year – when you went to lands so far
like it was the Hegira
when Muhammad went to Medina

thought you’d become a better writer
determined as much as He was to become more than just a caravan leader
and now too your marriage will be a boon
as was His to Khadija

but I just hope your strange dreams
that you spill on the pages
reward you some day with just as much reach
as had the Ayah

    strange you mention that because I was thinking exactly that early this morning about 3am too… I really mean that… for me the secret is practising patience through perseverance… I have to coax my muse 24/7 (un)consciously and she usually provides after some prolonged begging and usually in the wee hours of the morning as Sinatra put it 🙂
