The Way Of Your Love...

At first,

the way of your love

seemed easy.

I thought

I'd reach your union

with speed.

After taking a few steps,

I found the way

is an ocean.

When I stepped in,

a wave swept me

away. . .

~ Hamid al-Din Kirmani (13th Century)

(From : Love's Alchemy : Poems From The Sufi Tradition Translated By David and Sabrineh Fideler)


  1. I was already suffering. You have added salt to the wounds. And the fun is you are left asking for more. Because of this salt only, there is taste in life.

  2. I guess, most of us can relate to this feeling..
