The Single Link 
written by Amina Mofassir

Every now and then the solitary moments hold my hands,
and take me into seen yet unseen lands.
My thoughts float over the valleys and mountains that soar high,
the sky hugging structures,busy streets,the people and I.
I look around and think,
every thing threaded so delicately in a single link.

Every drop of water that moistens my lips,
gushing rivers and oceans with floating boats and ships.
Every crumb of bread that I eat,
Trees laden with fruits,the golden fields of wheat,
I look around and think,
every thing threaded so delicately in a single link.

Each leaf that moves, to blow the soft breeze,
the white blanket of snow that brings the freeze,
Each ray of sun that bathes the world in gold,
the seasons that change but never get old.
I look around and think,
every thing threaded so delicately in a single link.

The heart where I treasure my joys and fears
The eyes that share my smiles and tears,
All the things that make my life,
The pains , the leisures and the strife
I look around and think,
every thing threaded so delicately in a single link.

All the threads linked to one single link ,
take a moment to sit back and think.
Allah has showered you and me,
with the blessings that we enjoy yet not really see.
We can't thank enough for all that we get
To praise and give our thanks to Allah we shouldn't forget.
Subhanallah ,Alhamdullilah,Allah-u- Akbar!!
