Truths of Love (38)

Where Sufis are assembled,

Gabriel himself descends to serve.

The profane consider it forbidden

to listen to the sound of tambourine and lute,

yet during the sama of the lovers of Divine Unity,

even the angels in the empyrean clap along.

At the sound of sama, love’s winged steed

soars beyond all dimensions.

The one who has no desires remaining

has nothing to experience but joy.
