The Mirror and the Sun

If the heart doesn’t travel

the way of your union,

what should the heart do?

 

If soul doesn’t long

to be with the Friend,

what should the soul do?

 

When the sun’s shining glory

blazes forth in the mirror-

 

If the mirror does not say,

I found this poem from a book called Love’s Alchemy.

“Now look, I’m the sun,”

tell me, then-

what should the mirror do?

-Imam al-Ghazali
