rumi and the chalice

mir posted a lovely rumi poem on her fb status this morning.
she said it was her google fu that brought it up…
*activates librarian powers…accessing accessing…google fu*
the poem was from the 1990 text Like This, translated by C. Barks.

Close the Language Door

There is some kiss we want
with our whole lives,
the touch of Spirit on the body.

Seawater begs the pearl
to break its shell.

And the lily, how passionately
it needs some wild Darling!

At night, I open the window
and ask the moon to come
and press its face against mine.
Breathe into me.

Close the language-door,
and open the love-window

The moon won’t use the door,
only the window.

She asks me to use the door, but the atu for pisces is la luna
and all i can think of is tossing pebbles at her windowpane…

Here is another one that sings to me today, from the same text.

Ode 314

Those who don’t feel this Love
pulling them like a river,
those who don’t drink dawn
like a cup of spring water
or take in sunset like supper,
those who don’t want to change,

let them sleep.

This Love is beyond the study of theology,
that old trickery and hypocrisy.
If you want to improve your mind that way,

sleep on.

I’ve given up on my brain.
I’ve torn the cloth to shreds
and thrown it away.

If you’re not completely naked,
wrap your beautiful robe of words
around you,

and sleep.
