Poem

The World But Seems To Be

The world but seems to be
yet is nothing more
than a line drawn
between light and shadow.
Decipher the message
of this dream-script
and learn to distinguish time
from Eternity.


-- Fakhruddin 'Iraqi (Fakhr al-din Ibrahim)
English translation by William Chittick and Peter Lamborn Wilson
