The story of Fatima

Fatima has been deep into her writing and Luke has been ever more curious what is brewing in her mind. Fatima the muslim muse of Luke's is an enigma to many. Luke browses through the archives of Fatima's facebook in guise of female character named Maha.

Fatima wrote a Poem of a the 5 Ladies on Horses...

Five ladies on horses
Riding the dunes
The desert wind calls them one by one
Like a star in the night their
horses glow
Their veils would shimmer
Vivid and bright
Like neon on lights

They come a dashing
From far flung places
Where they are from
Marks their deep and secret traces

Each one with scar
Of yester years
A long and drawn out story
with trace of tears...

The mark that bears
memories of old
The pain and sorrow
that's healed by morrow

The ladies ride in majesty
Grace of wind waves their veils
Their eyes are vibrant, humble and subdued
Awaiting a song from a ray of clouds

A globe of crystal forms by a distance
Beneath the ray of shooting star...
A song is heard only they can decipher
Heavenly language of angelic sounds
abound...

They radiated grace and beauty
Far beyond the naked eyes
A spirit of longing felt at each fabrics wave

Cymbals sound at each horse footstep
Rain and dash of dew glimmers

The story is about 5 women who will meet a calling of a voice in the desert. They are the muse of the Arts and Science that travels through time and space and responds to calling of Most High. They ride with a shroud of veil to conceil their face from many people they inspire. Only the echoe of ones voice and a shadow can trace them. Like a jackstone star they each are paired with the light of the sun. Their veils shift into the scepter they each carry like swords. Their veils form a cord paired into a criss-cross as a form of Unity to the Creator.

Yu Ting - Red veil, spoon
Katarina - Green veil, flute
Norah - Blue veil, paint brush
Celeste - Purple veil, Feathered pen
Sadiyah- White veil, loom -she weaves

Fatima writes a story about her long lost Aunt as inspired by her mother whose passion has been to lift up the women in Iran from the law that has far suppressed their power like a bird whose wings are held back. Her family escaped Iran from the tyranny of the new regime. Fatima's mother inspired the entire family in the escape. Fatima's mother Sabah is social activist for the Muslim Women's league with a deep secret of believing in the name "Jesus." She kept her veil on occasion to identify with women in need of a sister. The death toll for many of the women in Islam is too high a price to pay and therefore being hidden in the veil is a solemn refuge to the painful teaching that Shariah has imposed.

Fatima in light of her mother's inspiration kept her veil for her mother. Each night they would tell stories of women from many walks of life. Her mother would comb her luscious long black hair. "We do not wear our veils as a pledge to Islam but as a pledge to the women who for so many years need others to identify with them!" "Our Sisterhood" her mother always mentioned is sacred for these women. Her family practiced sufism but Fatima being ever so adventurous manage to research further into the tennets of Bhuddism and Christianity. Who is this -"Jesus"?

Fatima is the one of the most beautiful poet Luke has ever met....She radiates a glow unlike most other students. Her veil attracts more attention than she intends. Many students has found it fashionable to scarf up and dress up like she does. Including of course.... Luke.
