“A Waking Town” (Rumi)

The taste of this life comes from you, soul moving like a mountain stream under a sky of flowers. Seeing such beauty makes me expect the dregs tomorrow.

I call you moon, but that is not right. Does anything resemble you?

The noise of a waking town fills my chest. Shams is saying this.
