Calligraphic dervish

(Human, Human. . .)

Human, I used to say.
Now I know what a human is.
Heart and soul, I used to say.
Now the heart can show the way.
Human, human,
Now I know what a human is: Hu.

The one who speaks about beliefs
is standing on the outside.
The one who finds it in himself
is born from the inside.
Inside, inside,
Now I know what the inside is: You.

Though life is short, a favor came.
One spark became a flame.
No splitting hairs or building walls,
now I know what binds us all.
Human, human,
Now I know what a human is: Hu.

 
(Burning, Burning. . .)

Welcome everyone drawn to this love,
Burning, burning, saying Hu.

Eighteen thousand worlds containing worlds,
Burning, burning, saying Hu.

In the center, the truth that you are,
Burning, burning, saying Hu.

Oh, Mevlâna, may wisdom fill our hearts,
Burning, burning, saying Hu.

Enter everyone, this circle of love,
Burning, burning, saying Hu.

Eighteen thousand worlds containing worlds,
Burning, burning, saying Hu.

In the center, the truth that you are,
Burning, burning, saying Hu.

Oh, Mevlâna, may wisdom fill our hearts,
Burning, burning, saying Hu.
Burning, burning, saying Hu.
