A description of the experience

In the Bazaar of Love – The Selected Poetry of Amir Khusrau – translated by Paul E Losensky and Sunil Sharma

Ghazal 1850: bakhtam az khvab dar amad chu tu ba man khufti

My fortunes woke when you slept with me.
You did not sleep in my embrace
but in my shining eyes. Restlessly
you flit about, yet in the sleepless eyes
of your friend, you slept like a friend
to strike our enemies blind.

One night,
you'll recall, we were both in the garden:
me in the brambles and thorns,
you sleeping amidst flowers and roses.

A cause to celebrate! Khusrau
perceived you so fully that you slept
all night with him, arms around his neck.
