He Who splashed a thousand worlds with colorby Ayn al-Qozat Hamadani
English version by Peter Lamborn Wilson and Nasrollah Pourjavady
Original Language Persian/Farsi
He Who splashed a thousand worlds with color
How can He buy the paint of "I and thou"?
Colors, colors -- nothing but whim and fantasy;
HE is colorless, and one must adopt His hue.
