Ask Me… (11/5/17)
Ask me about the essence of insanity on the way of Love.
Ask me about the soul that is gone and lost, about the mind turned upside down.
Ask me about the days filled with hundreds of events.
Ask me about the deserts burned by the fire of blood.

My Palace (10/8/17)
I asked, “O shining Beauty, where is Your house?”
He answered, “In your broken heart.

For All Troubles (9/10/17)
For all troubles, there are remedies in Love.
Love is a cloud which carries a hundred thousand lightnings.

The Situation Is Not Like That (8/20/17)

The Sign and Evidence (7/30/17)
You are the light of my heart, the peace and comfort of my soul.
You create troubles and, at the same time, You are the trouble.
They ask me, “Where are the signs, the evidence of the Beloved?”
But, the lack of signs and evidence is the sign and evidence of the Beloved.

Every Image Is Born from You (7/9/17)
I am not the man you think you know, you think you see.
Even if you could see, you wouldn’t recognize me.
You are unable to see anything but images,
because you are asleep, confused.
One Has to Be Brave (6/18/17)

One has to look for and embrace trouble.
It is not bravery to run towards Union.
One has to be brave on the day of separation.
