Day Five: Poems from Lalla

Here are two poems from Lalla that I read outloud on day five of the in-depth study!

75.
Kill desire, focus on the true nature of things.
Snap out of your daydreams,
there’s rarest wisdom to be found right here.
A void has mingled with the Void.

18.
Charge your bellows with breath
like the blacksmith taught you.
That’s how you turn your iron to gold.
You still have time, go look for the Friend.

both poems are from the book
I,Lalla
