Allah-u-Abha, Friends.

My name's Katherine, and I've met some of you on either LJBahai or BahaiYouth.com (or both!). With the semester ending soon, I should have more time for poetry. It's such a comfort to be with other poets who are trying to describe the indescribable experience of living in this Day. Much love to all of you!


Ala, 160 B.E.

It’s 5 AM,
and we’re making breakfast burritos,
three Bahá’ís, a Quaker, and a Catholic,
preparing for the morning we will see when our eyes adjust,
preparing for

dawn
or something in our souls
to break

wide open
like eggs,
revealing a sun.
