Within one curl of the Beloved’s hair I saw the birth of creation. I saw every name forming, every object coming into view. Yet there was no curl! ◆ I looked upon every Cross, in every church, yet He was not there.

So let me hear those words again— the ones you told me last night in your sleep! 20 Song of the Reed* ◆ Listen to the song of the reed, How it wails with the pain of separation: “Ever since I was taken from my reed bed My woeful song has caused men and women to weep. I seek out those whose hearts are torn by separation For only they understand the pain of this longing. Whoever is taken away from his homeland Yearns for the day he will return. In every gathering, among those who are happy or sad, I cry with the same lament.
