The way to Youby Hakim Sanai
English version by Priya Hemenway
Original Language Persian/Farsi
The way to You
lies clearly in my heart
and cannot be seen or known to the mind.
As my words turn to silence,
Your sweetness surrounds me.
|-- from The Book of Everything: Journey of the Heart's Desire, by Hakim Sanai Al-Ghaznavi / Translated by Priya Hemenway|

This poem by the great Sanai -- short and oh so sweet. I won't disturb its silence with a lot of my own words, except to thank everyone for the many warm-hearted comments and emails.
PS- Sending many blessings to the people of the Philippines. You've been very much in my thoughts this past week.
