The 2nd Eid- Baqrid


This day to celebrate the supreme sacrifice
of the ancient prophet Abraham
This day to ponder and reminisce
that divine substitution of Ismail for a ram!

This Quranic and biblical factual story
shall never diminish in its age-old glory

That superb reliance on and compliance with the will of God
eternally for man to learn from and applaud.

Upon his awesome trust in the unseen, let his kind marvel
and of submission, devotion to God bestow him a laurel

And now for the sake of mutual unity and festivity
first let all of humanity
release their doves of peace
and let them fly freely, unprovoked, unrestrained
with olive branches in their beaks

such that when angels who predicted
forever feuding humans
look down they see instead
6 billion or more two fingers up
in a huge mass of humanity
signalling for and meaning to keep the peace!

But mind you, world peace is to be everybody's goal
so let no one leave space for any loop-hole.
EID GREETINGS everybody.

    Occasions poems are the most difficult type; needs exclusive talent to soar over their familiarity; Zaynub did succeed to deal with that (Report) Reply

    That is a poem that explains the beauty of the day.....

    such that when angels who predicted
    forever feuding humans
    look down they see instead
    6 billion or more two fingers up
    in a huge mass of humanity
    signalling for and meaning to keep the peace!

    A message that will solve all the problems.

    Zaynub Eid greetings to you too...this poem is special in the way it commemorates the Supreme sacrifice in its glory & splendor, and it's different because media especially the T.V channels usually are interested in fun-shows rather than the cause.thank you Zaynub for this write.

    I see what you mean, but not everybody will find peace in that same time. Each individuals learn and go on life and a few will get the privilege to find it. Life is like driving on the highway, nobody is first and nobody is last, only a few will find what humanity is looking for.
    Life is a learning process. We learn from everything, every second. We can make our life heaven here and now if we are flexible and go with the wind, have respect for everybody and know that only good comes to us, no matter if it looks like good or bad.
    However people can make a hell of their life here and now if they want to force others, dictate, cruel, judgemental and more of what we see around us.
    But, everybody is on the way to enlightenment, just they are on the speed, what they can take.
    The poem is very well written. (Report) Reply
