Poem: The Tasbi

Sallam alaykum.

tasbi

The beads of the tasbi
Are the tears of the Sufi

The ticking of the tasbi
Is the heartbeat of the Sufi

The fragrance of the tasbi
Is the breath of the Sufi

The string of the tasbi
Is the rope of the Sufi

The weight of the tasbi
Is the lightness of the Sufi

And the smoothness of the tasbi
Is the road of the Sufi
