[Sunlight] As soon as you clear your hearing -- Ghazal 550



the voice of a saviour
will shortly be heard
as soon as you
clear your hearing

don't drink now
this polluted water
the elixir of life
will soon arrive

if you desire grace
lose your selfish self
till you can taste
the sweet essence

in the blackest
of your moments
wait with no fear

since the water of life
was found by the prophet
in the darkest caverns

-- Ode (Ghazal) 550
Translated by Nader Khalili
