Across The Divides Of Time

November 5, 2009

Lisa & Zeb-un-NissaHonoring and energizing the body’s center enables us to enter into the present moment.

There’s a curious feature of being present in “the eternal now”: the divisions of time, distance, language, and culture can disappear.

I’ve been collaborating across those divides with a 17th century Muslim woman — Sufi poet Zeb-un-Nissa.

Writing new versions of her poems, based on English translations published in 1913, draws me into the truth of human experience that is timeless.

Lisa & Zeb-un-Nissa is the blog I’ve created to post my versions of Zeb-un-Nissa’s poems plus information about her life and times. I invite you to join in on the process!
