Tauba

It was the turning of the heart that changed me

I turned around and saw for a moment, a minute,

A second, an eon, it came and it went, it came

And it went, each breath, each breath,

Each breath,

Like clouds coming and going

One falls down One gets up

It hasn’t made me a saint in fact

The greater the fall- The greater the glimpse

Can you imagine

Hearing the first sound of Universe

It can turn you mad.

 

 

 

(sufi term for ‘turning of the heart’)
