Sanai

Recently I am reading Persian Poets… one man has taken my attention!
his full name is Hakim Abul-Majd Majdūd ibn Ādam Sanā’ī Ghaznavi…

The body is dark-the heart is shining bright; the body is mere compost-the heart a blooming garden

The head has two ears;
love has just one:
this hears certitude,
whilst those hear doubt.

until you throw your sword away
you’ll not become a shield
untl you lay your crown aside
you’ll not be fit to lead

the death of soul
is the destruction of life;
but death of life
is the soul’s salvation

for until a man steps out from impurity,
how can the Quran step out from the page?

as you fill with wisdom
and your heart will love
there’s no more thirst
