His Living Proof

By Abdul-Qader Bedil
(1644 - 1721)

English version by David and Sabrineh Fideler

The eternal mysteries,
following wisdom's lead,
brought forth
the human form
as their living proof.

As long as the drop
hadn't emerged from the sea,
the ocean
didn't notice
the depths of its splendor.
