The Sarabite: Towards an Aesthetic Christianity

There is a continuous attraction, beginning with God, going to the world, and ending at last with God, an attraction which returns to the same place where it began as though in a kind of circle. -Marsilio Ficino

Osculetur me osculo oris sui : quia meliora sunt ubera tua vino...


My heart, bring me some sign plucked from the roses of hope's garden


You cannot bring a flower in bloom? Bring me an autumn leaf


Companion of my begging days, get up and go out quickly


Pawn anything- your life, your clothes- and bring abundant wine


O God, You have brought forth all this from what was non-existent


Bring me a kiss or two, brought from the corner of her mouth



- from The Seeing Eye: Selections from the Urdu and Persian Ghazals of Ghalib, translated by Ralph Russell
