Sunshine, Dust and the Messenger---Dawud Wharnsby Ali

Sharp clear crescent lighting the blue night
Slipping in silence through the star scattered sky
I close my eyes
And I know that I belong
Were you the same moon that lit the way of the Prophet
Slipping through the desert on his hijra?
Stars did you map the way to Madina
For the blessed messenger of Allah?
