Poetry Corner: Sultan Bahu

© 2017 Pippa Virdeewithin and without

in and out

there is resonance of my Love

there are beats of His rhythm

in union there is light

in separation there is darkness

Bahu is the slave in the two worlds

who serves his Master in every breath

in every movement of his heart and hearth !


Translation of poetry from: Harjeet Singh Gill, Sufi Rhythms. Interpreted in free verse (Patiala: Punjabi University, 2007), p.75.
