freedom beyond choice

LoA, "Gull on the Beach behind Fort Macon, the Tide Coming In" (Christmas 2006)

the freedom of light is to be seen;
the freedom of truth, to be embodied
so why do i stand here in this ambiguity
- a flickering light; an unstable meaning -
wavering between decisions which must be made
instead of losing myself in one of them
and becoming free:
the freedom of the infinite is found in the finite

As salaam alaikum.

Masha'Allah. Beautiful words and nice photo.

I've got some new fiction up. Insha'Allah come over and read a little.

Ma salaama,

and how finite I am is felt on that beach and still, there the infinite soul within my sings
