Poem Poetry: Rumi
“If you want love do not hide from the self.“
Stretch your face to my warming light
These penetrant rays will revive
Rejuvenate, activate inspiration in myself
Not hiding, but striving towards love
I want this exuberance in you too.
The corner dark and dreary, inconspicuous where you hide
Waiting, for love lost whilst not in stride
It’s it’s …. not really me at all in hiding
This self camouflaged in moldy drab
Enough I have of bad
Enough isolation in myself
The sad recognition, so alone in me I’ve had .
„Love is not what I here will find, Love is that which shines!“
I stretch my face to your love
Mine no longer hidden but free
Free of constraints which prevented self to see
Love is everything and everywhere in me.
“If you want love, do not hide within who you see.“
