Amore e pianto, vivono accanto

my sky

You are the sky my soul flies in …
without your presence
it falls silently to earth
without notice
like a feather

    • One Whisper of the Beloved

      Lovers share a sacred decree
      to seek the Beloved.
      They roll head over heels,
      rushing toward the Beautiful One
      like a torrent of water.

      In truth, everyone is a shadow of the Beloved
      Our seeking is His seeking,
      Our words are His words.

      At times we flow toward the Beloved
      like a dancing stream.
      At times we are still water
      held in His pitcher.
      At times we boil in a pot
      turning to vapor
      that is the job of the Beloved.

      He breathes into my ear
      until my soul
      takes on His fragrance.
      He is the soul of my soul
      How can I escape?
      But why would any soul in this world
      want to escape from the Beloved?

      He will melt your pride
      making you thin as a strand of hair,
      Yet do not trade, even for both worlds,
      One strand of His hair.

      We search for Him here and there
      while looking right at Him.
      Sitting by His side we ask,
      “O Beloved, where is the Beloved?”

      Enough with such questions!
      Let silence take you to the core of life.

      All your talk is worthless
      When compared to one whisper
      of the Beloved.

      actually first wrote on spur of moment with someone in mind, then later it felt something more mystical
