Abu Saeed : This flea-market

For more about the 10th c. Sufi Shaikh Abu Saeed Abil Khair, who referred to himself as ‘Nobody, son of Nobody,’ see this earlier post.

Your faculties are for seeing through this flea-market,
not to make it your kingdom.
Seek contentment in the solitude of your heart.
Soon there will be solitude only.
What if you don’t find your heart there?

Rendition by Vraje Abramian
