Mourning for Moaz d-Kasasbeh

Not the Qur’an itself,
but only later writings name
Daniel, and his three friends,
Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego,
as prophets.

Not clear from the newsfeeds
and the propaganda
is the date or way,
the reason or reasonlessness,
of Moaz d-Kasasbeh’ death.

But all we, who are
Children of the Book,
know that in that fiery furnace
there were angels,
there was the path to paradise.

    It was really your concern on a day when I was leaving town that pushed me deep to find some (very inadequate) words.
