Inward Sky (2)

Prophets come and go for one reason, to say,

Human beings, you have a great value
inside your form, a seed. Be led
by the rose inside the rose.

Doubt is part of existence.
There is no proof of the soul.

So I ask in this talking with soul,
this prayer, this kindness, When the soul
leaves my body, where will these poems be?

Answer: It was like that in the beginning,
so what are you worrying about?

Love, finish this ghazal, please.
You know which words will last.

Shams, say the meaning of the names,
the inward sky that you are.
