Dying and giving birth go on

by Lalla

English version by Coleman Barks
Original Language Kashmiri

Dying and giving birth go on
inside the one consciousness,
but most people misunderstand

the pure play of creative energy,
how inside that, those
are one event.

-- from Holy Fire: Nine Visionary Poets and the Quest for Enlightenment, Edited by Daniel Halpern
