Neither You nor I, neither object nor meditation

by Lalla

English version by Ranjit Hoskote
Original Language Kashmiri

Neither You nor I, neither object nor meditation,
just the All-Creator, lost in His dreams.
Some don't get it, but those who do
are carried away on the wave of Him.

-- from I Lalla: The Poems of Lal Ded, Translated by Ranjit Hoskote
