Ghazel for the Prophet’s Birthday | Kabir Helminski

Those eyes that search for the miraculous
see the Enchanter embodied in all forms.

People treasure what comes
to them in visions:
whether dragons, angels, beauties or pirs.

This is how Truth appears in the world;
yet the One is alone in the Universe.

And I, too, have made myself
a sandbox of meanings
Where the Infinite Eternal can be revealed.

Our Prophet is called the Praiseworthy.
And the praise of him purifies us.

In gardens of gratitude we till and water;
Healing herbs will grow, to cure the blind and the deaf.

Let us celebrate the birth of the Beloved
a candle for every nation, and gifts for every one.

(c) Kabir Helminski
