The Only Obligation ~ Rumi


Into the meadow

Originally uploaded by Allard One

Today a new madness
is trying to set us free,
tearing open our sacks.

Some nameless Bedouin
has bought Joseph again
for eighteen coins.

A narcissus sprouts through the ground.
Our souls, having pastured all night
on jasmine, leap up for the dawn.

The world is new, and you
have been chosen to say this poem,
because you are the one with the love bites on you.

Your love has brought us to this silence,
where the only obligation
is to walk slowly through a meadow
and look.

Why Rumi?
