Sufi Trees

The trees are Sufis
Swaying back and forth
Intoxicated with Allah’s light

Some are arched, with their backs bent
Others stand straight and tall
Performing the Hadra

Their green hair waves left to right
Rocking their heads —
Dhikr has engulfed them

Their arms reach high to the sky
Trying to reach Allah —
They have forgotten this materialistic world
