[Sunlight] The Mirror Between Us -- Ghazal 1453



The Mirror Between Us

The mirror between us is breath
mist when I speak. Your face

in water: I reach, the work
grows muddy. Even friend and

beloved are wrong words for this.
Even ahhhhh retreats back into

my mouth, the same if the moon's
behind cloud or being released.

A pure silent look is better.

-- Ghazal (Ode) 1453
Version by Coleman Barks, with Nevit Ergin
"The Glance"
Viking-Penguin, 1999
