Lalla - Meditate within eternity

Meditate within eternity

by Lalla

English version by Coleman Barks
Original Language Kashmiri

Meditate within eternity.
Don't stay in the mind.

Your thoughts are like a child fretting
near its mother's breast, restless
and afraid, who with a little guidance,
can find the path to courage.


-- from Naked Song, by Lalla / Translated by Coleman Barks
