My Swan, Let Us Fly


My swan, let us fly to that land
Where your Beloved lives forever.

That land has an up-ended well
Whose mouth, narrow as a thread,
The married soul draws water from
Without a rope or pitcher.

My swan, let us fly to that land
Where your Beloved lives forever.

Clouds never cluster there,
Yet it goes on and on raining.
Don?t keep squatting outside in the yard ?
Come in! Get drenched without a body!

My swan, let us fly to that land
Where your Beloved lives forever.

That land is always soaked in moonlight;
Darkness can never come near it.
It is flooded always with the dazzle
Of not one, but a million suns.

My swan, let us fly to that land
Where your Beloved lives forever.

Kabir

In anguish everyone prays to Him, in joy does none
To One who prays in happiness, how sorrow can come.

Kabir

The universe came into being gradually over six days.
God could have just commanded, Be!
Little by little a person reaches forty and fifty
and sixty, and feels more complete.
God could have thrown full-blown prophets
flying through the cosmos in an instant.

Jesus said one word, and a dead man sat up,
but creation usually unfolds, like calm breakers.

The Word came from the non-physical realm.
When the Word lifted up the veil and showed himself,
Then people realized
That the Word was a manifestation of God.
If the Word comes from God's Wisdom,
It accomplishes the spiritual processes of the Divine. 
But if it comes from us human beings,
It causes quarrels and wars.

Rumi

He speaks to us in silence, telling us to come Home.
