Our Exuberance (2/12/17)

Our Exuberance (2/12/17)

We keep turning like the sky with the Love of the Moon.

Only God knows our business.

Considering the things that happen in this world,

we wonder how smart people can keep their minds in their heads.

Yet, they wonder about our exuberance.

The Hidden Treasure (1/29/17)

The Hidden Treasure (1/29/17)

We are the hidden treasure of this muddy world.

We are the owner of the land of Eternity.

Once we pass through the darkness of this mud,

We are Hizir* and the Fountain of Life.

*Legendary Godsend who attained immortality by drinking from the water of life; comes to aid in a critical moment.

It Is Time (1/1/17)

It Is Time (1/1/17)

How long will we be satisfied by the shapes and appearances of time?

How long will we watch and sniff after existence?

I am tired of the materials and creatures of the present; it is time to see that Beauty of Beauties.

But, when I look at Him, I see my image. When I look at myself, I see His.
