The Guest is God

Feelings are guests of the heart

How do we treat our guest?

In the Path of Love, the guest is ‘God’

or a guest of God.

This particular guest arrives without notice and leaves without notice

seat your guest on your finest interior

where heart rules and mind inferior

the guest has a role

listen to her

she has lessons to teach

her language is silence

so listen attentively

when she leaves

is up to her

your job is honor the guest

pen your heart and whirl

or so as inspired

once the lessons are learned

the guest usually

disappears

and when you least expect

it

another shall be sent

these guests are all

messengers of love

why not rejoice

you have a guest

the guest

is a sage

a saint

a mad man

a dancer

an ashiqa

a melancholic

a drunk

honor every visitor

seat her on your

finest interior

where heart rules

and mind inferior
