The invitation

There is an unseen path that takes one to the door of the beloved. One cannot determine in advance which way it will go or where it will lead. Whether it will pass along grand boulevards, winding backstreets or small crooked lanes, one has no way of knowing. To begin with one does not even know that it leads to the beloved’s door. Indeed, it is only when one receives the invitation from the beloved that one realizes that there is such a thing at all.
