The Secrets of Our Heart (5/15/2022)

The Secrets of Our Heart (5/15/2022)

One cannot reflect our fire,

nor can one articulate the secrets of our heart.

 

Our early morning sighs are not confidants with whom we share our troubles,

nor is a friendly soul even to be found to hear those sighs.

 

We are not the pearl which has been found in the sea,

nor are we a sea which ever rests.

 

We are not the meaning which comes from words,

nor are we words which can be said.

 

Language is like a canal for meanings.

But, how could such a sea fit in this canal?

 

Every piece of the soul’s world makes a new world,

but such a new world could never fit in someone’s mouth.

Divan-i Kebir, Volume 19, ghazal 269, verses 2756-2761, page 121.
