Night Sky
 

O my Lord, the stars glitter

 Rabia (Rabi'a Al-'Adawiyya)
(717 - 801)

O my Lord,
the stars glitter
and the eyes of men are closed.

Kings have locked their doors
and each lover is alone with his love.

Here, I am alone with you.

 
That is Orion... I am sure you know that . Somewhere in the middle is the belt going down diagonally... and a little to the left is the sword...
If you have ever camped out in the open countryside I am sure you would have enjoyed seeing this at night there too....
 
Camp nights were always beautiful. Even more so when there was no moon and the skies were starry clear and radiant.
 
In the rush of our daily living perhaps we  do not make a little time  for the stars....
Or a little time to be alone with the Lord either....
 
Wishing you  and your family more  alone time with the stars
and with your Lord...
 
Let me say it again......
 

O my Lord,
the stars glitter
and the eyes of men are closed.

Kings have locked their doors
and each lover is alone with his love.

Here, I am alone with you.

 
 
Take care.
Love, Terence
