Shining Coal

Inspirational Image from


I climbed to the sun’s source

Flew to the tweeting birds and the dormitory of the stars

I journeyed from the East to West, from the high North to the South

I remained conscious till the awakening of the moon, yet I could not find the words

From the dry seasons till full blossom of the productive fields

I still could not fetch the priceless words for my Empress

For every word was weightless

On my Beloved’s scale

So I sleep

Maybe in the perpetual sleep I may find the words

To make her emotions go over the clouds

For even in your affinity, you are astounding

Yes my beloved, you are not beautiful

You are beauty
