Treatise on Kabir II

65

Are you looking for me?
I am in the next seat
Your heart jumping
As our shoulders touch

As our heads turn with smiles
In a moment that is a feast
Not found in temples, holy books
Not found in rituals, or authorities

Not in teachers, or sayings
It is the living divinity of life –
I’ve burned my own house down
With my yearning for you?

Ecstatic beloved. of divine partnership
Admire the diamond that can
Bear the hits of poverty and loneliness
It is the human spirit, bundled

In the market of profitless meditation
Lo! I am beside thee, and for an instant
Our minds are love, in a moment of time
Are you looking for me?

Student, tell me, what is God?
Is he but an empty dream, the soul too?
A garden of flowers O lost friends!
In your body is the garden of flowers

Take your seat on the thousand
Petals of the lotus, and gaze on Infinite Beauty.
The ultimate unbounded cannot be lured
By virtue, philosophy – but only by

Purity, freedom, emptiness, the silence
Of non-attachment, the glory
Of a lover who sees his beloved everywhere
There, an Eternal Fountain has no words.
