[Sunlight] Cry Out Your Grief -- Ghazal 2208



Cry Out Your Grief

Cry out all your grief, your
disappointments! Say them in

Farsi, then Greek. It doesn't
matter whether you're from Rum

or Arabia. Praise the beauty
and kindness praised by every

living being. You hurt and have
sharp desire, yet your presence

is a healing calm. Sun, moon,
bonfire, candle, which? Someone

says your flame is about to be
dowsed, but you're not smoke or

fire. You're infinitely more
alive. Say how that is! This

fluttering love will not stay
much longer in my chest. Soon it

will fly like a falcon to its
master, like an owl saying HU.

-- Ghazal 2208
Version by Coleman Barks
"The Soul of Rumi"
HarperCollins, 2001
