Keep Rumi

How happy is the one
whose heart’s ear
heras that special voice
as it begins to arrive

clear your ears my friend
from all impurity
a polluted ear
can never hear the sound
as it begins to arrive

If your eyes are marred
with petty visions
wash them with tears
your teardrops are healers
as they begin to arrive

Keep silence
don’t rush to finish your poem
the finisher of the poem
the creator of the word
will begin to arrive..!

~ Rumi
From: Rumi ” Fountain of Fire”
Translated by Nader Khalili
Art "Listening to the sounds of Harps" by...Peter Piatt
