Cardamom Pods

She came from a foreign land
Holding bags and warm tales
Of life and humanity across the globe

There were two sad cardamom pods
Amongst the empty space
A girl she came , she ate

The women she talks for sometime
Dubai she says
The girl leaves not wanting to interrupt
The girl is sad
Not wanting to finish the pot
Her silver reflection staring upwards

The women leaves
Gifts she had three
They were strange to say the least

Pistachio nuts
Dates filled with sweet stuff
And a freezer bag of cardamom pods

What was written for the girl came
She praised the One deserving of praise
He creates the means, He does sustain

Right graciously did her Lord accept her: He made her grow in purity and beauty: To the care of Zakariya was she assigned. Every time that he entered (Her) chamber to see her, He found her supplied with sustenance. He said: "O Mary! Whence (comes) this to you?" She said: "From Allah: for Allah Provides sustenance to whom He pleases without measure."

Your Guardian-Lord is Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth in six periods, and is firmly established on the throne (of authority): He draws the night as a veil over the day, each seeking the other in rapid succession: He created the sun, the moon, and the stars, (all) governed by laws under His command. Is it not His to create and to govern? Blessed be Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds!
