The Lover The Mermaid And The Sage - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan

Floral crowns of petals
The nature of mysteries
The cup is enough
For mortal universe
Self in one being or another
Is immortal

Infinititude
Claims the universal soul

Soft touch broke the chains
Of madness
So went the spirit in deep sleep

Was the fall a knowledge
Mathematician on earth draws
Lines show either him or us
Who else otherwise

Him of madness we know
Him of love we touch
Him the soul we calculate

The gentle breeze sings
There is another night
Before the dawn
Madness
Before the touch
Another love
The mermaid in the lines sees
