Flood


I don't understand this flood of love
What is happening?
Why is my heart overpouring with this sweet nectar?
Why is it pulsating luminosity like a Shams in my heart?
I don't know if I may touch you, would my fingers burn, would they burn you?
I don't know how to carry this and walk about
I don't know how to host this generous traveller
Where is the qibla,
What is the compass,
Am I the traveller or the host?
Why is the earth turning upside down?
Why is love flooding from all directions?
Will I drown,
Am I drowning
Or am I saved?
