Sufi Poetry
The Stairway of Existence

Are not
In pursuit of formalities
Or fake religious

For through the stairway of existence
We have come to Godís

We are
People who need to love, because
Love is the soulís life,

Love is simply creationís greatest joy.

The stairway of existence,
O, through the stairway of existence, Hafiz

You now come,
Have we all now come to
The Belovedís

~ Hafiz

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I'll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase each other
doesn't make any sense.

“Still in the dark womb how could he imagine the indescribable majesty of this world? In the same way, when the mystics speak of worlds beyond scent and color, the common man deafened by greed and blinded by self-interest cannot grasp their reality.”

― Jalaluddin Rumi, Rumi's Little Book of Life: The Garden of the Soul, the Heart, and the Spirit

Same, Uma. The beauty is effervescent.

I went looking for Him
And lost myself;
The drop merged with the Sea --
Who can find it now?

Looking and looking for Him
I lost myself;
The Sea merged with the drop --
Who can find it now?

Thank you for posting these. I am not familiar with Sufi Poetry. It was recommended by a friend, but my to-be-read book list is very long... It's a good problem to have. :) This thread has inspired me to read more Sufi poetry. Subscribed and rated. Many thanks.

When you see my corpse
is being carried
don't cry for my leaving
I'm not leaving
I'm arriving at eternal love.

Seekest thou Layla
When She in thee is manifest? (1)

Thou countest Her other,
Yet other than thee She is not. (2)

"Whoever, then, is of the chosen and predestinate will have the Blessed Virgin living within him, and he will let Her plant in his very soul the roots of every virtue." (3)
