He Who splashed a thousand worlds with color

by 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.

-- from The Drunken Universe: An Anthology of Persian Sufi Poetry, Translated by Peter Lamborn Wilson / Translated by Nasrollah Pourjavady
