The Awakening Touch

Being Muslim its not easy to state how this poem was inspired by a story in the Bible. But being Muslim also makes it much easier to find inspiration in the holy book of our predecessors. Isa or Jesus (peace be upon him) as we read, was gifted with the power to raise the dead ( please correct me if i am wrong) This poem is inspired by the feeling of those worthy of the awakening touch.

The Awakening Touch

In servitude

of Lazarus.

Awakens might,

the envious.

and owls they shriek

from sightless gusts.

As the crippled sing, songs of lust

in hopes to seek,

the holy touch.
