I came across this site while looking for

the poems of the Turkish sufi poet Yunus:)

I guess, in a way, the sufi mystic led me to your

interfaith siteLOL-

Before I will quote Yunus,

(who is a mystic and speaks the universal language of love)

as a Jew living in Israel, I felt I wanted to share

my hope that we all (especially Israelis and Palestinians

and everyone else) find the courage and trust to

open up to our innate true nature of love and

radiate it back to the world.

may there be peace for all.Smile


The drink sent down from Truth, 
we drank it, glory be to God. 
And we sailed over the Ocean of Power, 
glory be to God.

Beyond those hills and oak woods, 
beyond those vineyards and gardens, 
we passed in health and joy, glory be to God. 

We were dry, but we moistened. 
We grew wings and became birds, 
we married one another and flew, 
glory be to God.

To whatever lands we came, 
in whatever hearts, in all humanity, 
we planted the meanings Taptuk taught us, 
glory be to God.

Come here, let's make peace, 
let's not be strangers to one another. 
We have saddled the horse 
and trained it, glory be to God.

We became a trickle that grew into a river. 
We took flight and drove into the sea, 
and then we overflowed, glory be to God. 

We became servants at Taptuk's door. 
Poor Yunus, raw and tasteless, 
finally got cooked, glory be to God.
