Poems

Drawing

Notes

In this poem the painter is in fact the creator (God) and the canvas is life full of struggle for love. It ends with togetherness in the cup of tea and, according to Sufism, when the lover and beloved reach one another they become one with God - hence the cup of tea with dissolved sugar being drunk by the painter.
