Look at Love…
Look at Love…

how it tangles

with the one fallen in love
look at spirit

how it fuses with earth

giving it new life
why are you so busy

with this or that or good or bad

pay attention to how things blend
why talk about all

the known and the unknown

see how unknown merges into the known
why think separately

of this life and the next

when one is born from the last
look at your heart and tongue

one feels but deaf and dumb

the other speaks in words and signs
look at water and fire

earth and wind

enemies and friends all at once
the wolf and the lamb

the lion and the deer

far away yet together
look at the unity of this

spring and winter

manifested in the equinox
you too must mingle my friends

since the earth and the sky

are mingled just for you and me
be like sugarcane

sweet yet silent

don’t get mixed up with bitter words
my beloved grows

right out of my own heart

how much more union can there be
-Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi

translated by Nader Khalili


There is a candle in your heart…
There is a candle in your heart,

ready to be kindled.

There is a void in your soul,

ready to be filled.

You feel it, don’t you?

You feel the separation

from the Beloved.

Invite Him to fill you up,

embrace the fire.

Remind those who tell you otherwise that


comes to you of its own accord,

and the yearning for it

cannot be learned in any school.

-Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi

translated by Sharam Shiva
