Level: 3



my soul
there is a temple, a shrine, a mosque, a church
where I kneel.


Prayer should bring us to an altar where no walls or names exist.


Is there not a region of love where the sovereignty is
illumined nothing,


where ecstasy gets poured into itself
and becomes


where the wing is fully alive
but has no mind or


my soul
there is a temple, a shrine, a mosque,
a church


that dissolve, that
dissolve in


– Rabia, translated by Daniel Ladinsky.
