Rabi’a al-‘Adawiyya
B. 717 Basra, Iraq / D. 801 Jerusalem
Happiness

Dreams foretell
a new lover in my future.
History supplies
what she’ll answer on a Saturday:
“How can you ask me such a question as ‘What do I desire?’ I swear by the glory of God that for twelve years I have desired fresh dates, and you know that in Basra dates are plentiful, and I have not yet tasted them. I am a servant of God, and what has a servant to do with desire?”
Truly there is nothing new under the sun.
