Amidst dim lights, delicious food, and incredible company at Stardust Video & Coffee, IAO's first poetry reading went fantastically! With famous selections from Rumi, Ibn Arabi, Getrude Stein, and others plus original works from several talented readers, the event was a night of intellect, fellowship, and great times. Poems were read in English, Arabic, and even Spanish. Seeing the incredible group of people gathering to share in the poetry displayed the openness of our community and its willingness to learn more about Sufism.
Thank you to everyone who braved the stage and shared poems that touched on your spiritual connections to Islam. Thank you to all who came, listened, and shared in the atmosphere. And thank you to our wonderful host Stardust for your generosity of time and environs.
