Where Borealis and deers kiss
The white blanket of Arctic light
Enchants a Cree woman Mcredi and Ali of Beirut
After one century and three Decades
A town filled of families
A life filled with accomplishments
A nation joined by two cultures
The first mosque furthest north for a while
Success in business and politics
A mayor who is proud to attend Juma
A fur trader who opened Hudson river
The romance that catches the eye
The man who was a friend of her brother
Hanging out together in a party
An suddenly like the moon had entered the room
How about some fresh air outside my fair lady?
Lac la Biche is the lake of the deer
Like the panting deer yearns for water so their hearts
The rest is a beautiful history!

Tragedy strikes again
Insufferable conditions for us
Yet justified as tolerable for them
A wonderful society we live in
Not sparing a moment of time for them
Brothers and sisters it's time
We give more than a kind thought for them
Haitians suffering only to rise stronger again
Is it that we can't spare a dollar knowing?
It may save countless children, women and men
In the Name of Allah
This message is sent.

Eyes that pierce and dance in a singular breath
Skin that shines the moonlight
Speech stronger than Malala
The Muslim warrior is born in North America
Not afraid to speak to power
Full of artistic splendor like the nightingale
The gesture to share on the shores
The willingness to breathe new life into Faith
This inner light
Coming from the mountains of Kush
More beautiful than Borealis
It's the pink a feminist is sometimes afraid to don
The coconut warrior!

Caribbean Muslim Convention 2016
People of Queens
Gathered under God
What a delight to eat cassava pone
And listen to Moulana Shafayat!
People of Princess town and Corentyne
Gathered under the American flag
What a delight to have dunkin’ donuts
And relish Melinda Katz and Dr Quick in one breath!
People of Roots and volunteerism
Gathered from masajids and cliques
What bliss to savor yummies and ice crush
And to eat and pray with Dr Shabbir and the beautiful hijabis of Ehsan Academy!
People of Allah
It was the best experience ever!
Your love is unconditional,
And I propose a cruise to the Islands for the next Caribbean Muslim Convention!

Longing for the aspirant childhood dream
That dances in my nocturnal journey
I prayed for the exotic union
Laid bare on the altar of Essequibian love
As ebony is enriched by the beauty of love
The waters so dark shed its inhibitors
Like the inhabitants of Paradise pure is the desire
One stroke in a thousand years
Love through faith
Love under the raining rooftops
In the waves that musically awaken buried passion
Like Damon and Cuffy
A revolution within is born and dreams lived again!
