“Your Old Aunt and Uncle” (Rumi)

My mother was destiny. My father, grace. I am the prince of synchronicity and serendipity.

If I meet a wolf, he turns into a kind friend. If I am lowered into a well, it becomes a garden.

A stony miser comes to me and starts giving his wealth away. Do not offer me money. I have a teacher whose fragrance brings statues to life.

If his face appears, your old aunt will leave your uncle and never return. I ask, Will you finish this story

and give the explanation? You say, Yes.
