A Prayer....! by Rumi

O Giver of life,
release me from Reason
that it might depart and flit
from vanity to vanity.

Break open my skull,
pour in the wine of madness.
Let me be mad as You are;
mad with You, mad with life.

Beyond the commonsense
of the conventional
and respectable sanity
and the information-infection

a desert burns white-hot
where Your dervish-sun
whirls in every particle of light -

O Lord,
drag me there,
let me roast in Perfection!

~ Rumi
