Poetry from the book: Revelation
By: Hazrat Salaheddin Ali Nader Angha
You taught me Love, That is why I lost control of my Heart. You showed me your beauty, That is why I am lost in you. You told me, “Give me your soul. I will give you my love.” I gave you my body and soul.
All there is, is You.
Poetry from the book: Ghazaliat
By: Hazrat Shah Maghsoud Sadegh Angha
Having turned my mind delirious, intoxicated With your vintage glances, You’ve for sure turned My very being into pure drunkenness’ meaning! And now You just stand, bemused, watching me writhe!
You take delight that your design has fated This disgrace in the city my madness has earned! Yet, subtly, I say— Nay, You’re, indeed, doing This misdeed to Yourself; and unpierced stays my pith!
Make me not divulge Your secret, mandated To be kept from humanity— Heed my concerned Plea! But, nay, nay! What I’m saying Is wrong; for, it’s You who revealed Your sheath!
You have given life, but mercilessly confiscated The heart— What a God-like act You’ve spurned! “I’m God”, You say to me; but by stating So, You’ve merely promulgated an old myth!
For one hundred years, I’ve been, in a way, dead; You’re the soul of the universe’s soul! And yearned I — as parakeet, to merely speak, to merrily sing! But it’s only You who speaks; I barely breathe.
Here, I am, but completely annihilated; And only being drunken I’ve here learnt! But You are eternal, You’re everlasting; And You’re the saki the wine to bequeath!
By Your light is this heart-land illuminated; And You bless the moth with wings (to be burned!) You are God, forever manifesting Yourself in the image of man, at the zenith!
Time and again, on the earth, as man You’re manifested: Both the high interest and the capital well invested You’re the sun, and hide in each particle-core! The king You’re, yet keep company of the lowly pauper as Your kith!
In the zenith of mountains of abundance, led By You, the wings of flight Angha has earned. A hundred other manifestations of Yours bring Your revelation to the sight; to the heart, your myth.
