Short New Poem of Mine — From Forthcoming Book


19hz3q80jm.jpg

Resting Place

There are no maps for the land
my mind's eye is fixed upon
Instead a trail of wrecked ships
mark this treacherous path

My guide, a mysterious star
whose light dims if, briefly,
I happen to turn away -
and which glows brighter
when my heart's aflame.

—-Yahia Lababidi
in A KALEIDOSCOPE OF STORIES
Muslim Voices in Contemporary Poetry

Coming soon from Lote Tree Press


What is this poem about? Purpose, faith, following our dream & the too high price that we pay when we swerve from our path or forget...
