A poem by Rumi

From Bridge to the Soul


Today I see Muhammad ascend.

The friend is everywhere,

in every action.


Love, a lattice.

Body, fire.


I say, Show me the way.

You say, Put your head

under your feet.


That way you rise through the stars

and see a hundred other ways

to be with me.


There are as many as there are

flightpaths of prayer at dawn.
