Comments about Fatima Naoot
All of a sudden she could see
After an intricate operation performed in a hurry
More in line with committing criminal poetry
A long time she had listened to dozens of books
Her empty eyes
When she danced with Lama
On the hillside,
He told her that the soul can transcend earthly life
If freed from the retina.
She was illiterate
The pain on her face
While in trance
Spoilt the text
The pen bent
Before completing the story.
No way of return, now
Knowledge is coming
And ignorance is
A lost paradise
