A Sufi Love Poem

| No Comments

My Love for You is as the Fountain of Tasnim

 

You will recognize in their faces the brightness of bliss.

 They are made to quaff of a pure drink that is sealed.

The sealing of it is musk

And the admixture of it is a water of Tasnim

 A fountain from which drink they who are drawn near.

Holy Quran

 

My love for you is as the fountain of Tasnim

In the green meadows of paradise.

 

In the valley of undisturbed peace

This love is a fountain of mingled joy and tears.

In the wine-cup of one taste

It is the bittersweet water of human experience.

 

My love for you is as the fountain of Tasnim

In the green meadows of paradise.

 

On the journey of alone to Alone

This love is a trembling hand of companionship.

Amid the lofty crags of solitude

It is a downy eaglet, crying for nurturance.

 

My love for you is as the fountain of Tasnim

In the green meadows of paradise.

 

In the deep velvet night of haqiqat

This love is a beacon of warmth and fellowship.

On the uncharted ocean of unity consciousness

It is a lighthouse of pathos and compassion.

 

My love for you is as the fountain of Tasnim

In the green meadows of paradise.

 

In the boundless expanse of serenity

My love for you is an ache of tenderness

In the silence of this unfettered heart

It is the poignant melody of human sorrow.

 

 My love for you is as the fountain of Tasnim

In the green meadows of paradise.

 

This love is stronger than death

It conquers distance and time

For it is the shimmering play of appearance

Within the radiant void.

 

My love for you is as the fountain of Tasnim

In the green meadows of paradise.
