A poetry project to write 99 modern sonnets, each inspired by one of the 99 beautiful names of God from the Sufi tradition. As Blavatsky said - 'Words Matter!' - and so does feeling!!
Some poems will refer to my son Andrew who has Down's Syndrome .... and every word, every facet, has to do with something probably quite ineffable -- Love!

88. Al-Ghani – A Garden
Suggests garden, free, generous --- 'And azuring-over greybell makes wood banks and brakes wash wet like lakes bluebells’ Hopkins
God said to Peter
‘To walk on lakes, you’ll
need my water – and to catch
our fish, go fishing!’
