The author is Hakim Sanai and he was born 1080 about 127 years before Rumi. Both men were Sufi Poets and wrote about the God, but I find that his writings are all about love. Many of his poems have a presence that only the heart can feel. When I first touched his words I felt a soft breeze flow through my whole being. I felt present and complete. This little book has the magic takes me away into myself.
I wanted to share one of his poems, so I'm going to open the book randomly to see what wants to be spoke.
The way to You
lies clearly in my heart
and cannot be seen or known to the mind
As my words turn to silence,
Your sweetness surrounds me.
Thank you Hakim Sanai for you sublime words. I hope that you have enjoyed his words and the feeling this poem creates.
