“A Walk You Can Take” (Rumi)

If you want a deep inwardness, there is a walk you can take with a friend.

Your five senses do not understand what he says, but look in his eyes: a bird is soaring there, mounting beyond and beyond.

The sun that rises every day in the east

is a speck in that friend’s intelligence, a ray slipping into the courtyard garden

where a hundred different flowers grow.

Quiet now. Another sun has risen. The Shams-sun floods with light

the most inner privacy of that friend.
