    Oh my goodness, To write a love letter, I need to fall in love with someone. It's difficult to fall in love with someone prior to December 1st. wink I mean it's too fast, isn't it? Lol!

    Is it possible to write a love letter to God? Or maybe a poem on God's love:) I think I can try. wink

    Bredz, thank you very much for sharing this.

    Blessings and Love!!

      These are some of the guidelines, Misbah.
      "A love letter or poem written to any of the following (they MUST be a real person or pet): 
      Your husband/wife/boyfriend/girlfriend/partner/significant other/parent (or parents)/child (or children)/grandparent (or grandparents)/a beloved pet/another writer or poet (living or dead)/someone you don't know, but would like to get to know/someone famous (living or dead) "
      Not sure if that would include God, but why not try?

      I have hundreds of classics like that, Misbah. In fact, people call them romantic. I do not tell them I'm speaking to God. Some sense it, so don't. Think of Allah and use the creative side of your nature. Many say wrong things about Rumi's poems, because of the way he wrote.

      Think of Allah as a man bringing you gifts, showering you with praises and make use of flowers and the cosmos to describe this Love. Go into your feelings and touch on how the Heart feels and the fact that Love alone will do, nothing else.

      Explain how much you yearn or pine for Him, That you offer your life or death for His feet. Don't use divine words, but let your Heart be Divine and you'd do well. Peace.

        Everything you said is correct, my dear brother. If we speak to God as He is the Lover. We will surely experience genuine pleasure. smile You already know how much I admire your work. Don't you? smile

        Blessings to you!!

        I am hoping for a positive response but their list did not include God's Love. However, I am confident that everyone Loves God in some way. wink

          Misbah...
          It's a letter to someone.
          Maybe write it To God from you...showing the love you have for him

          It says a letter to someone you've never met & would like to meet.

            Not a bad idea but I believe, I should first wait for their response to my previous submissions. cool

              Okay.  Maybe so, but he only takes up to 200 & I think he has 180 already.

              Maybe send a follow up email to make sure he received it.

    That picture itself is a very powerful prompt, my Habibti. Write another. Can you feel the timelessness of its sacrifice; the all-pervading redolence of its sweet-scentedness? Can you hear the quintessence of its laughter, while your heart melts in the beauty of its Light.

    Does the unfurling rose remind you of His soft, tender and intimate touch; Breath running along your burning spine, as you lie on His lap of supernal Love? Does the auru of His silhouette enthrall you? Chuckle. So much here! Add more!
