'The shadow of love
deepens on the body's wall

Over the mind's cities
it is falling like evening

Throw open the western windows
and vanish into twilight

Petals flicker open
around the bight calyx

at the night's heart
your own heart

beyond night and day
and dark and light

and you're more awake now
than you've ever been

you understand
that this is love

you taste its honey on your tongue
it rolls through your body like a wave

like a shimmer of bells
like a lowing of blown conches

like a skirl of bagpipes
in the empty palace

of the sea
of splendors

Kabir says: listen friend
if you want to see God

just look into the depths
of your own body'

Poetry by Kabir (c.1440-1518)
Translation by Bob Hays
