My hearing, sight, my tongue and hand: all He

by Baba Afzal Kashani

English version by Peter Lamborn Wilson and Nasrollah Pourjavady
Original Language Persian/Farsi

My hearing, sight, my tongue and hand: all He.
Then I am not, for all that is, is He.
I think I am, and thought is but a dream.
When I awake, all that remains is He.

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