09-01-2004 11:01In a rare guest appearance, now on this site a new poem by SIAM, arguably the best living American poet, commemorating Edward Said and the struggle for Palestine. SIAM combines deep Sufi mysticism of Rumi, and all-American cosmic spirit of Walt Whitman. His poetry is a natural phenomenon as much as a work of art, and reminds of a vulcano in full blast of its furnaces, with lava erupting and rocks flying out: spectacular but scary. In presence of his poetry, one feels that the gift of prophecy is still with us, for his is the language of prophets. Descendent of Native Americans, Africans, Arabs and Europeans, all-human son of Milton "Cowboy" Smith from Indianapolis, a graduate of Harvard Divinity School, SIAM lived with the monks of St Maur until he discovered the mystic teaching of a Senegalese saint Shaikh Ahmadou Bamba who founded the Mourid Mystical Order of Islam in the early 1800's. His poetry is a sign of life sent by the soul of America to the world, saying: America is still alive.
