Poets of Love

Abdullah Ansari of Harat : An Early Sufi master….translation by A. G. Ravan Farhadi

 

Pursiut of the friend

The heart left,

                                And the Friend is (also)gone.

I don’t know whether I should go after the Friend

                                Or after the heart!

A voice spoke to me:

“Go in pursuit  of the Friend,

Because the lover needs a heart

                In order to find union with the Friend.

If there was no Friend.

                What would ( the lover ) do with (his) heart? “ this book is available through LINK+
