Wisteria-Scented One


~ Wisteria-Scented One ~

I sit by the lake
of your being, gazing
at the unraveling sky
your heart offers;
from this sweet vertigo,
myriad of verses
surround every gesture
you make, O majesty!
How graceful you are,
my wisteria-scented one!
You lead me on the Path
of Love, losing myself
with every step that kisses
Mawla’s footprints:
with you near,
Heaven tastes like this!

Your Inner Joy


~ Your Inner Joy ~

Find your inner Joy
so that your happiness
is not dictated by
external circumstances.
