“I Have Such A Teacher” (Rumi)

Last night my teacher taught me the lesson of poverty, having nothing and wanting nothing.

I am a naked man standing inside a mine of rubies, clothed in red silk.

I absorb the shining, and now I see the ocean, billions of simultaneous motions moving in me.

A circle of lovely, quiet people

becomes the ring on my finger.

Then the wind and thunder of rain on the way. I have such a teacher.
