A Muzdawidj

All is alive and living, rising to light
civilizations peak in power’s full might
kingdom building, making self’s endeavors right.

Jackals searching for water in desert sand
dried streams and thorns in wilderness’ empty land
Allah’s Truth lost and too blind to understand

The dry seed waiting for Allah’s perfect time
life contained in dead shell, nature’s paradigm
hidden in dark waiting for light and springtime

Resurrection is happening every day
all things must rise and be reborn a new way
for the soul must be transformed within earth’s clay

Creation sings of His Glory, to Him Praise
for the goodness of all, new life in Time’s phase
cycling movement, eternal rebirth always

Hi Sheryl, Beautiful poem...spiritual, but masnavi is a form of couplet... masnavi cannot be "tercet"... your is made of 3 lines... check masnavi in Poterysoup and its example.

Thank you for you comment. However, a Muzdwawidj is the Arabic form of the Masnavi which is a tercet. " Arabic Mathnawi (Also called Muzdawidj) has one major difference in that it is presented as a triplet; a. a. a. / b. b. b. / c. c. c.. pattern, rather than a couplet shown previously."
