Before The First - Bibi Hayati

Tajul Iqbal


Before The First.


Before there was a trace of this world of men,
I carried the memory of a lock of your hair,
A stray end gathered within me, though unknown.

Inside that invisible realm,
Your face like the sun longed to be seen,
Until each separate object was finally flung into light.


From the moment of Time’s first-drawn breath,
Love resides in us,
A treasure locked into the heart’s hidden vault.

Before the first seed broke open the rose bed of Being,
An inner lark soared through your meadows,
Heading toward Home.


What can I do but thank you, one hundred times?
Your face illumines the shrine of Hayati’s eyes,
Constantly present and lovely.

- Bibi Hayati

I am for those....W.W.

* Dedicated to this month in LEO! *



I am for those that have never been master'd,

For men and women whose tempers

have never been master'd,

For those whom laws, theories, conventions,

can never master.


I am for those who walk abreast with the whole earth,

Who inaugurate one to inaugurate all!


Walt Whitman
