Inspired by the Night Ascension of the Prophet, the poem describes a
spiritual journey from this world to the heavenly spheres of the Moon, Mercury, Venus,
Mars, Jupiter and Saturn and from there beyond the bounds of creation towards the Divine
Presence. Beginning with the loneliness of the poet in his earthly abode of separation,
and the potentiality of Man who is but a mere handful of dust, the poem reaches its climax
when the journey ends in absorption in the contemplation of Divine Majesty and Beauty.
