  1. By entering into the moment so whole-heartedly as to become one with the moment? But even such a moment cannot continue indefinitely in this world of time – so then, I suppose, by repeating the moment? Beautiful poem, regardless.


  2. “A single ney/follows his breath”: That captures this longing for ‘the one’ so well β€” I love how effortlessly you have emulated the Sufi elements and made them your own in this language and motif. The ending question is for the ages! Wonderful!
