Out in Empty Rumi

If you catch a fragrance of the unseen,
like that,
you won't be able to be contained.
You'll be out in empty sky.

Any beauty the world has,
any desire, will easily be yours.

As you live deeper in the heart,
the mirror gets clearer and cleaner.

Shams of Tabriz realized God in himself.
When that happens,
you have no anxieties about losing anyone or anything.
You break the spells human difficulties cause.

Interpretations come, hundreds, from
all the religious symbols and parables and prayers.

You know what they mean,
when God lives through you like Shams.

~ Rumi
