Day will be erased in night

by Lalla

English version by Coleman Barks
Original Language Kashmiri

Day will be erased in night.
The ground's surface will extend outward.

The new moon will be swallowed
in eclipse, and the mind in meditation

will be completely absorbed
by the Void inside it.

-- from Naked Song, by Lalla / Translated by Coleman Barks
