[Sunlight] Inside Shams's Universe -- Ghazal 384



Inside Shams's Universe

Inside a lover's heart there's
another world, and yet another

inside the Friend of this community
of lovers, an ear that interprets

mystery, a vein of silver in the
ground, another sky! Intellect and

compassion are ladders we climb,
and there are other ladders; as we

wallk in the night, the voice that
talks of forgiveness; inside Shams's

universe candlelight itself becomes
a moth to die in his candle.

-- Ghazal 384
Version by Coleman Barks
"The Soul of Rumi"
HarperCollins, 2001
