Sermon: Nursed by the Breast of the Sky

Poem by Rabia of Basra (c. 717-801), revered Mulism poet:

 

A BREAST IN THE SKY

I hear talk about the famous.

I hear talk about different cities.

The most intimate events of families come to my ears.

I hear about temples and 

mosques and

saints.

All that can be said I have heard.

All that can be wanted I

have seen.

My interest in this world has waned though,

not because I am

depressed.

A fish in a bowl I was, 

a bottom feeder,

but now I nurse

upon a breast 

in the

sky.
