“What is Inside the Ground” (Rumi)

Whatever gives pleasure is the fragrance of the friend. Whatever makes us wonder comes from that light.

What is inside the ground begins to sprout

because you spilled wine there.

What dies in autumn comes up in spring

because this way of saying no

becomes in spring your praise song yes.
