HOWLIN' DERVISH Poems
Intertwined In Love
Now I am wholly intertwined in love
Wholly torn from creature comforts
My heart is no more - some other sustains me
Reason, thoughts... are emblazed at their very root
Envision my vision - behold me through my eyes
Beyond all illusions - I have chosen a home
'In The Market...'
'In the market, in the cloister - only the Real I saw.
In the valley and on the mountain - only the Real I saw.
Truth I have seen beside me oft in tribulation;
In favour and in fortune - only the Real I saw.
In prayer and fasting, in praise and contemplation,
In the Truth of the Prophet Jesus - only the Real I saw.
Neither soul nor body, accident nor substance,
Qualities nor causes-only the Real I saw.
I oped mine eyes and by the light of Truth’s face around me
