ilm (c) 2010 Aïda Touré


~ ilm ~

the state we meet in,
soul in soul,
we dance with the Cosmos,
tracing Love
through the breath,
its knowing and the drunkenness
that wildly leads us,
to subtle ilm, the corridor
to “Read!” the metaphor
that only the unlettered mind
could bring forth
with brilliance,
with unmatched excellence.
Lo! Do you hear?
Someone is knocking
at our centers’ door,
we have said too much,
seal our lips,
make us go within,
tear the veil;
gently, my love,
let us dissolve…
