The book of Sufi wisdom

Is not written on the blank page,

But on a heart white as virgin snow.

Scholars pursue penmarks.
Sufis track footprints in the snow,

Like hunters tracing a musk – deer’s trail,

Until they breathe in the sweet scent

That the deer exudes from its navel,

And rush to catch their quarry
