A New Moon of Shawal Al Kareem

Today the New Moon marks Eid
The hilal of grace...to the giver of grace
The ship of rehmat sails to Najaf and Kufa
For Ali and Husain, the vessels of grace will arrive
Twice they will embrace
The captain and his first together
With them the spirtual yearning of thousands
The sacrifice of Kerbala and the sands that heal
Beckon the arrival to the very shores
Where the tents once stood firm
Winds of injustice replaced by the gentle breeze
As the vessels sail to the shores of Hussain
Embracing Burhanuddin and Saifuddin.
