[Sunlight] Cup and Ocean



Cup and Ocean

These forms we seem to be are cups floating in an ocean
of living consciousness.

They fill and sink without leaving an arc of bubbles or
any good-bye spray. What we

are is that ocean, too near to see, though we swim in it
and drink it in. Don't

be a cup with a dry rim, or someone who rides all night
and never knows the horse

beneath his thighs, the surging that carries him along.

-- Mathnawi 1, 1109-16
Version by Coleman Barks
"The Soul of Rumi"
