The Universal Tree and the Four Birds
"From my incompleteness to my completeness, and from my inclination to my equilibrium
From my grandeur to my beauty, and from my splendour to my majesty
From my scattering to my gathering, and from my exclusion to my reunion
From my baseness to my preciousness, and from my stones to my pearls
From my rising to my setting, and from my days to my nights
From my luminosity to my darkness, and from my guidance to my straying
From my perigee to my apogee, and from the base of my lance to its tip...
I am no one in existence but myself, so – Whom do I treat as foe and whom do I treat as friend?...
For I am in love with none other than myself, and my very separation is my union.
Do not blame me for my passion. I am inconsolable over the one who has fled me."
