Illusion And Reality

What is seen is not the Truth
What is cannot be said
Trust comes not without seeing
Nor understanding without words
The wise comprehends with knowledge
To the ignorant it is but a wonder
Some worship the formless God
Some worship His various forms
In what way He is beyond these attributes
Only the Knower knows
That music cannot be written
How can then be the notes
Says Kabir, awareness alone will overcome illusion

A wonderul flight of imagery to narrate beauty and tenderness.
I have to do a report on Sappho and this poem really helps
Very impressive poem. The poet's daughter must have real golden flower. Very beaitifully knitted multiple topics and brought out the poem like a capsule form!
....beautiful the imagery of purple ribbons - -★
