Somebody once asked Rumi

"Who are you?"

And he replied

"I do not know who I am. I am in astounding lucid confusion! If you label me and define me, you will starve yourself of yourself. If you box me down with labels and definitions, that box will be your coffin. I am your own voice echoing off the walls of God!"

I do not say it...

I tell everything, but I do not say it,
because, my Friend, it is better
your secret be spoken by you.

~ Rumi

'Soul moon'

I worship the moon.
Tell me of the soft glow of a
candle light...
and the sweetness of my moon.

Don't talk about sorrow,
tell me of that treasure,
hidden if it is to you,
then just remain silent.

Last night
I lost my grip on reality
and welcomed insanity.
Love
saw me and said,
I showed up.
Wipe you tears
and be silent.

I said, O Love
I am frightened,
but it's not you.
Love said to me,
there is nothing that is not me.
be silent.

I will whisper secrets in your ear
just nod yes
and be silent.

Become the Sky

Inside this new love... die
Your way begins on the other side
Become the sky ...



Take an axe to the prison wall
Escape
Do it now
Walk out like someone suddenly born into color
Do it now

You're covered with thick cloud
Slide out the side
Die... and be quiet

Quietness is the surest sign that you've died
You're old life was a frantic running from silence

The speechless full moon comes out now

~ RUMI

Come, come again, whoever you are, come!

Heathen, fire worshipper or idolatrous, come!

Come even if you broke your penitence a hundred times,

Ours is the portal of hope, come as you are.
