Bismillah gift

A beautiful gift by Sofia Arastu

I have been looking out for a good Bismillah frame for my home as far I can remember … during childhood my lovely neighbour Nazifa Nawaz H who is an exceptional artist would do a lot of modern art and to get influenced by her art was a gift I would say… and it was her art that had given shape to my imagination of how I wanted the Bismillah frame to look like for my home.

I never came close to selecting one for years of bazaar hunts.. at one point I thought let me do it myself instead.. though eventually I ended up writing a poem ..

Sofia your artwork is that beautiful match and it is such a delight in my home.

Deer runs, Hiphop

Deer 🦌 runs , hip hop!

stood there soulfully
Humming mystery,
For long
In silence

Kept loving deeply
With her canopy of energy,
For long
In silence

Seeing through the veil
With her inner lamp lit
The illusions disappear
and a different trail hits

Just beat it.
Just beat it.


deers have soulful eyes and no wonder it just feels me.
