what silence said

Art Feather, What Silence Said, MysticSaint
all things shall perish,
... all things shall perish,
....... all things shall perish,
except
.......... His
.............. Face.

and to Him,
... and to Him,
....... and to Him,
you shall be brought
back at the end of the journey.

in the secret antechamber
of your heart,
may this contemplation you do:
'what perishes,
who remains,
and who is brought back to Who?'

with every breath the human image
...... says: Hu! Hu! Hu!

the silence has already spoken,
now the answer awaits you to listen.

- Sadiq Salim

- based and inspired from the Quranic verse "kullu shay-in halikun illa wajhahu" XXVIII: 88 and its approximate translation 'all things shall perish except His Face'. The title 'What Silence Said' is inspired by a song by Susheela Raman.
