Come into the sea of reality...by Rumi
You are a bird of the sea,
even though a chicken
has sheltered you beneath her wing.
The desire in your heart is for the sea;
your soul has that nature from your mother.
Leave your land-bound nursemaid
and move on.
Come into the sea of reality.
You are a waterfowl:
you can live on land and sea.
You are of royal birth, for . . .
"We have ennobled the children of Adam:"
you walk on both dry land and sea.
(Come into the sea of reality)
Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
