“The marsh toads interviewed the eagle
‘How come you venture so high?
Aren’t you scared you’ll hit the ceiling
That blue metal dome they call the sky?’

The eagle knew these earth-bound creatures
Were ignorant of
boundless space
And couldn’t conceive
of infinities
Not being born to the wind’s embrace.”
From Bachchoo’s Fables”
Farrukh Dhondy

“BY HIS WILL Only by His will do atoms move The beat of every wing He must approve No one can explain this and none should try The infinite can never answer ‘why?’ Even though we strive to know the ‘how?’ Through science, before Him we have to bow And give ourselves, our lives and will to God With no thought of a blessing or reward In these our lives, my friend, nor in the next Does this simple truth leave your mind perplexed? Then know that contentment is part of bliss Don’t ask for love, and yet accept a kiss. O Sufi, do not long for paradise Be content with His love, this earth, these skies.”
Farrukh Dhondy, Rumi: A New Translation
