On Art Pieces Of Arabic Calligraphy! - Poem by Shahzia Batool

I adore the brush in worship
in aesthetic devotion
hearing the soul of the artist
singing hymns
getting pinned up to The Almighty
the colors speak the word of Lord
the recital of verse
in their own bold tones and strokes
charms the sight
touches the insight
through the artistic mysticism
The Holy Writs on the canvas
of the melting clouds
or the waves of the sea
sing the notes of praise
to the Lord of creations and colors
whispering the secrets of existence
against the glossy foils
God is everywhere
verily! The connection to God
is not confined
to the premises of a mosque!

    I understand that instead of images, Muslims use words to represent God. The scripts of Koran in beautiful calligraphy adorning the walls of mosques have a mystic artistic appeal....

    God is everywhere
    verily! The connection to God
    is not confined
    to the premises of a mosque! I do appreciate your ecumenical view on God and religion, Shahzia! ! Great read! (Report) Reply

    When ever I see the creation I am amazed to view the differences in each and every creation in color complex shape size race religion and so on e.g your face is different other is different similarly in language also as well as in calligraphy.. Above all, all have the same soul which is operating the body in absence of which it is dead.. if you minutely observe you will find four difference amongst all. Arabic is one of the mother of so many other calligraphy that so it has a profound nature for expression. A good write. (Report) Reply

    The Holy Writs on the canvas
    of the melting clouds
    or the waves of the sea
    sing the notes of praise
    Almighty's glories are present everywhere. They are etched in the mind in beautiful calligraphic forms. Thank you for the nice poem. (Report) Reply
