“Sometimes I need
only to stand
wherever I am
to be blessed.”
— Mary Oliver (Evidence: Poems)
And this I finally understood…the signs I was seeking on the outside were woven into the fabric of my feelings. The treasures I seek are buried in the character traits I embody. Oh Allaah make my mind a fertile land that receives the rain in abundance, allowing me to bloom in earnest. I’m tired of these imports.
