Kabir: songs of a weaver- 10

Separate us?

pierce a diamond first.

We are Lotus

And water,

Servant

And master.

My love for you

is no secret.

I am the grub

To your ichneumon fly,

The river

To your sea,

The borax

To your gold

Heightening its effect.

Translated by Arvind Krishna Mehrotra.
