I Ask One More Thing ~ Rumi

 

Today pour the full cup.
Slap the wheel already spinning
so frantically.

This wine is invisible,
yes, but the effect is not.

I ask one more thing
from the love that has given us
this dear time together.

Lift the veil
from the face of the king.

Why open a rosewater shop
and keep the garden secret?

You have set the river flowing,
Now release the ducklings.

We are the first double-leaf sprout
two inches out of the ground.

We need rain, or we may not grow
more than this. Cynics on all sides say,
You look for what does not exist,
and saying that,
they steal laughter from the fool
and music from the lute player.

I want these words to stop.
Calm the chattering mind, my soul.

No more camel’s milk.
I want silent water to drink
and the majesty of clear waking.

Why Rumi?
