    As I read, Divan of the Infidel, I found myself walking on a journey of love, spirit, self and soul. Luz’ relationship with the Beloved is lyrically expressed in this collection of sacred poetry, which is beautifully raw and intimate. I was compelled to read the book a second and third time, at which, I was taken into the depths of Luz’ personal journey of faith, surrender, healing and sacrifice. I was particularly touched by her piece, Turn. Many of us, who stand or have stood before the Divine, often do so through blind faith. Turn speaks to us about just the opposite. Luz surrenders to that which is greater than she. And in that surrendering, she opens and shares her path toward her Divine Light!

    First off, give it up for the glossary. A real help if you want to come in close with Luz... like really check out the use of language and choice of words. If you've read Rumi, Hafiz or Gibran you'll recognize the circular, self-referencing, vessel-ness going on throughout. You can be sure there's service contained in this work. And it goes deep, which is really refreshing in these days of surface acquaintances and hi speed connections. Our girl goes to the mat with the power of a devotee's questions on the complexities of fidelity, endurance, devotion, surrender... because i believe surrender is bliss, I am particularly drawn to the second poem, Haram, which is all about that. This poetry circles overhead like a hawk. Watching and waiting for the right moment to glide down and snag a morsel of flesh. And this collection has the force to hurt you like that. That's how it is when your husband is murdered thousands of miles away from where you might have been able to make a difference.... More > Read through the collection again now with that lens. You'll feel the depth more precisely....< Less

    This Book of Sufi Poems is an inspiration, a healing tool which shares the depths of a solemn heart from a sacred universe to the world we share in. Her poems remind me that we are delicate creatures, who struggle through this life, who question and re-mem-ber this life to be just a place that we visit; a place where we commune, teach, and learn along the journey from this life to the next. These poems brought me to tears, made me look at my own journey, made me look at the depths of my own heart, made me think of how I came to be here now. What heavy insight that is filled with emotion, thank you Luz for your amazing written work.
