Hiding in this cage--poem by Kabir

I took time this morning to enter the silence deeply, inspired by the Woodcarver story (Feb 21 post). That is the place I want my art to come from, that deep place of Silence. The place beyond judgement, beyond concern for gain or success.

From this place I remembered the name Hazrat Inyat Khan and checked him out on line, finding much that resonates with me. And then I found Kabir: 

hiding in this cage
by Kabir

English version by Sushil Rao
Original Language Hindi

hiding in this cage
of visible matter

is the invisible

pay attention
to her

she is singing
your song
