Rugs and riches – Abu Dhabi Sheik Zayed Masjid interiors

lamps, chandeliers
carpets of thousand colours
granite, marble tiles,
mother Earth riles
such expense
at whose cost
piercing million holes
extracting more and more
humanity living folklore
happily ever after

I have shown you through my humble lens the outside of the majestic Sheikh Zayed Masjid, let’s now see the colour of interiors and fascinating patterns. Absolutely amazing human creation. There is a bit more thought provoking poem at the top on how humanity is using earth treasures, it’s minerals, energy assuming this will last forever. Have we thought about sustainable solution for our future generations.

Lost colours, frosty lands

In dire need of
a magic carpet,
death defying,
flying, rug

desire dearest’s
few kisses
heart to heart
tight warm hug

Embrace, kisses
deeply felt,
wall resurrected
insanity to sane

lost will and
composure regain
sordid world
seems colourful again

frozen night
melts away
born again
a frabjous day
