"O Children of Dust!

Tell the rich of the midnight sighing of the poor..."

Baha'u'llah

Persian Hidden Words 49

"Be anxiously concerned with the needs of the age ye live in,

and centre your deliberations on its exigencies and requirements."

Baha'u'llah

The Tabernacle of Unity, paragraph1.4

The nineteen poems below are samples of four completed collections of poetry written by Jason J. Ross. The most important ones were excerpted from The Feast and Holy Day Poems. This body of work seeks to celebrate the activities of the Baha'i Community Life. The Juku were taken from a collection of one full Kullu-Shay of Haiku composed with nineteen syllables. There are Odes & Elegies which honor distinguished individuals and subjects. And, finally, pieces from Culture Shock are presented which display scenes from the urban streets of the author's home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA.
