you and Rumi

Glorious is the moment 
we sit in the palace,
you and I

Two forms, two faces,
but a single soul,
you and I

The flowers will blaze
and bird cries shower us with immortality
The moment we enter the garden,
you and I

All the stars of heaven
will run out to gaze at us
As we burn as the full moon itself,
you and I

The fire winged birds of heaven
will rage with envy
In that place we laugh ecstatically,
you and I

What a miracle,
you and I,
entwined in the same nest

While I am here in Konya,
and you are in Khorassan
What a miracle,
you and I,

one love, one lover, one Fire
In this world and the next,
in an ecstasy without end.

~ Rumi
