Not a stone or flower

O traveler, traveler along the way,
there is not a single soul who lacks a pathway to God.
There is not a stone or a flower—
not a single piece of straw lacking the divine essence.
In every particle of the world the sun of love
causes the heart of each atom to shine.

—Muhammad Shirin Maghribi
from Recitations, translated by Lynn Bauman

Thank you so much for this nestled image - all things are held safely with God indeed. And I love the combination of lines, colours and textures - a satisfyingly simple and complex whole! Thank you.
