'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
