Sufi Poetry: „Who is He?“

Who is He

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lord, whose face is this reflected in spirit’s mirror?
Such beauty painted on the inner screen–
who is HE?

Each atom in all space is filled…
Who transcends the galaxies,
shows Himself in every molecule–
who is HE?

Sun in the costume of various specks of dust
sparks forth various rays of light at every moment–
who is HE?

Outwardly you appear in the meat of our existence
but he who is hidden in soul’s marrow–
who is HE?

In soul’s fete every now and again HE sings a new song,
melodies of peace touching the veils of the people of the heart–
who is HE?

HE who manifests Himself upon Himself
makes love to Himself in the name of lovers–
who is HE?

How many times, Mo’in will you drag yourself and me between us?
HE, the goal of I and thou, is there — right there!
Who is HE?
