In Every Pot


Those who know
The million million colors and forms
Spring from one color, one form,
Pay no attention whatsoever
To castes or division.

Those who do not recognize God
Those who give their hearts
To anything but God
Those who enthuse about the Scriptures
They die too –
They adore the words
But never realize
The Spirit behind them.

All they go about doing, in fact,
Is applying makeup
To eyes blind with prejudice –
O Sheikh Tazi, realize
Once and for all
The Lord of Eternity lives
In every pot.

~ Kabir
