Ecstatically~

~ Ecstatically ~

Everything is a loan.
What you think you possess
is actually not yours;
your body, your senses,
your very being and breath:
they all are borrowed
from the Inheritor within.

All that is, all that flows,
springs from and returns 
to Him, ecstatically.
Turn inward dear one,
it takes emptiness
to know fullness,
see the light that flickers
in longing for you to draw near!

Who could resist such a pulling
to divine Surrender?
Who could endure
the impulse that whispers:
“Come my love, free your soul,
everything is beyond your control!
We are quanta oscillating
in the Bliss of Al-Batin.”
