Light Breeze
invisible spacer to set column width

As regards feeling pain,
like a hand cut in battle,
consider the body a robe you wear.

When you meet someone you love,
do you kiss their clothes?

Search out who's inside.

Union with God
is sweeter than body comforts.

We have hands and feet
different from these.

Sometimes in dream we see them.

That is not illusion.

It's seeing truly

You do have a spirit body;
don't dread leaving the physical one.

Sometimes
someone feels this truth
so strongly
that he or she can live
in mountain solitude
totally refreshed.

The worried, heroic doings
of men and women
seem weary and futile
to dervishes
enjoying the light breeze of spirit.
