Imam Setiaji Ronoatmojo

(1 July 1960 / Cilacap (Indonesia))

Praise for Rabiah al-Adawiyah


Maybe I was a bush
Treated in the prayer
And within countless
silence
Words of love poured

Silence is bliss
On the clinch of glory tree
Nothing misses incontrovertible
Just not spacious winding road

You're bargaining me
Your grief can’t be bought
By unspeakable hatred
Just love what you've got

You were Rabiah al-Adawiyah
You didn’t feel the pain of grief
Love isn’t spelled out
God isn’t in the words

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
