About the Lover 🎨
A primer on next week's Part III
O lovers, lovers it is time, to set out from the world.
O lovers, lovers it is time to set out from the world. I hear a drum in my soul’s ear coming from the depths of the stars. Our camel driver is at work; the caravan is being readied. He asks that we forgive him for the disturbance he has caused us, He asks why we travelers are asleep. Everywhere the murmur of departure; the stars, like candles thrust at us from behind blue veils, and as if to make the invisible plain, a wondrous people have come forth. The Divani Shamsi Tabriz, XXXVI
Stay tuned for Part III of Zelda’s adventures next week, as Khaled takes our character into the uncharted and poetic world of the Lover.

Each poem helps the reader dial into a snapshot of present life, and open space for its simple beauty to shine through.
