Come let's speak of our Rumi

Come let's speak
of our souls
let's even hide from
our ears and eyes

Like a rose garden
always keep a smile
like imagination
talk without a sound

Like the spirit
reigning the world
telling the secrets
uttering no word

Let's get away from
all the clever humans
who put words in our mouth
let's only say
what our hearts desire

Even our hands and feet
sense every inner move
let's keep silence
but make our hearts move

The mystery of destiny
knows the life of
speck after speck of dust
let's tell our story
as a particle of dust

~ Rumi
ghazal number 1540, Nader Khalili
