Only God I saw

Below is part of a Persian Ode by the dervish-poet, Baba Kuhi of Shiraz, who died in 1050 A.D.

with love, Lilie

In the market, in the cloister -- only God I saw.
In the valley and on the mountain - only God I saw.
Him I have seen beside me oft in tribulation;
In favour and in fortune -- only God I saw.
Neither soul nor body, accident nor substance,
Qualities nor causes -- only God I saw.
I opened mine eyes and by the light of His face around me
In all the eye discovered -- only God I saw.
Like a candle I was melting in His fire:
Amidst the flames outflashing -- only God I saw.
Myself with mine own eyes I saw most clearly,
But when I looked away into nothingness, I vanished,
And lo, I was the All-living -- only God I saw."
