The winged Ηeart - A Sufi song

~A Sufi Song~

The winged heart is a heart rising to God,
immersed in a single-minded quality of surrender and devotion. 
For such a heart there is but one Beloved,
and all other beloveds are part of this One.
For such a heart there is only one goal,
and all other goals are part of this as well.
For such a heart there is only one Relationship,
and all others derive from this One.

Nakedly celebrating its rapture in being close
to the One who is All, the heart that has wings
seeks to spread its wings to embrace more and more
of the Beloved, and also to uplift
and carry others upward on the Journey to the One.

The crescent in the heart is the sliver of moon
that is responsive to the light of the Sun,
reflecting more and more of this light
until it becomes a completely Full Moon.
The five-pointed Star is the Divine light itself
that finds a place to live within the heart
and that causes it to respond.

Embracing all forms of spiritual touch,
all forms of mystical joining,
the winged heart represents to mankind,
the lover that seeks the Beloved,
the seeker that seeks the Truth,
the heart of the beloved that seeks to be free.
