Sufi Poetry Carnival | Serving Love of the Beloved

Sufi Poetry CarnivalIn Sacred Remembrance of Divine Sadiq Alam and Tiel Aisha Ansari presenting the first ever Sufi Poetry Carnival in the cyber-space. We are grateful to be able to share and to serve Love, in sweet remebrance of the Beloved.

God hath treasures beneath the Throne, the keys whereof are the tongues of poets - Saying of the Prophet, may indescribable peace be upon him

As a classical rule, Sufi Poetry has always been the expression of Divine Love, which is exactly the theme of the first edition of Sufi Poetry Carnival.

We are happy to have among us some of the eminent contemporary sufi poets, dervishes, translators and authors to grace the carnival with their kind participation. Notable are Coleman Barks, Daniel Abdal Hayy Moore, Kabir Helminski, David Fideler, Irving Karchmar, Sabrineh Fideler, Aida Toure and Wahiduddin Richard Shelquist. Also there are participations by many blessed hearts across the globe and each of their poems testifies the outpourings of Love for the Divine.

The poem below is a collage assembled from the first lines of poems (thats Tiel's brilliant idea) contributed. Click on each line to read the original poem.

. Serving Love of the Beloved .

In poverty stands he firm with eyes
those eyes that search for the miraculous
searched for my Beloved everywhere ... in vain.
Some of us seek and forget,
but You never taught me how to fly.
Moulded with the ability to think
Forget all that cleverness, just be in Love.
There’s courage involved if you want to become truth.

Take a walk, lose yourself to the nature.
Everywhere on the tongues of birds
hear, O darvish, the song of Love.
Love's concert is calling.
The big sky smiled so wide!
Just as we smile with
a tulip in spring.

Any fool can talk to God.
Confucius said that words are the voice of the heart.
The man with the oud played a lullaby tune-
closed lips speak loudest.
