Translations by Daniel Ladinsky
As I reviewed the last seven love poems, this one leapt out at me. It expands what I see my role in a universe that unfolds. If this is true, being aware of it unfolding is not the only key, but I also have a role in helping it to unfold.
and with that thought I prepare for a bit of silence myself and leave you with this,
may it help the unfolding that is happening inside our hearts.
Expands His Being
are words of God,
His music, His
Sacred books we are, for the infinite camps
Every act reveals God and expands His being.
I know that may be hard
All creatures are doing their best
to help God in His birth
Enough talk for the night.
He is laboring in me;
I need to be silent
for a while,
worlds are forming
in my heart.
