(His Excellency), The Grand Mufti

For (His Excellency), The Grand Mufti                                                     لمحمد أحمد حسين

standing proud, atoms

and diamonds of light
on tall evergreen trees

which glow at night

on the road to Jerusalem
and masking the past,
at last! ancient masks
olives along the road to Jerusalem

crystal and atoms of light
exquisite beyond flaw
o’ the Jerusalem pines
and I think of God’s Law
