This infinite Word is everlasting...by Rumi
No one has shown
the beginning or end of the Infinite.
God said, "If the sea were to become ink . . ."
Still God's word could not be written out.
Though all the orchards and forests were pens,
still we would be no closer to defining it.
Ink and pens pass away,
yet this infinite Word is everlasting.
Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
