Power of a word

...Yanus says one last thing
about the power of words:
Only the word "I"
divides me from God.

Yanus Emre (1208-1320) (Sufi)
From: "A single word can brighten the face."

Seeking truth (second draft)

On a formless path to an endless end.
I saw a traveler on another wend.
"Sister," I cried, "the path is here."
"Thanks," she said, and continued there.

We met again, of course, at last.
"Shall we try each other's paths," she asked.
"But how?" I wondered, tempted but afraid.
"All the real paths are one," she said.
