Lightning, your presence
from ground to sky.

No one knows what becomes of me,
when you take me so quickly.

God is alone, Give him your soul to feel this emptiness.
Always speak from your heart!
If you are a mortal, believe and hope, fear god.
My god is love and love is all.

Friend, Shams Tabriz, my friend. I love this giving my life to you, or to anyone who knows someone who knows you,
caught as I am in your curling hair, inside your Kashmiri-witch eyes.

Begin as creation, become a creator.
Never wait at a barrier.

In this kitchen stocked with fresh food,
why sit content with a cup of warm water?
I stand up, and this one of me turns into a hundred of me.
They say I circle around you.
Nonsense. I circle around me.
