"A Picnic of Poems"


I've packed some poems for lunch,
some rhymes for us to chew,
a simple, sippy, soup of songs,
to stir and sing and stew.
Like all good meals to munch,
it would be very rude
not to begin with bismillah ,
to bless our poetry food.


Canadian-born Dawud Wharnsby began writing poetry, composing music, and performing in his teens. Since then he has become a voice for socially conscious and spiritually minded individuals in the twenty-first century.
