Where Everything is Music
    #4191272 - 05/18/05 04:19 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Don't worry about saving these songs!
And if one of our instruments breaks,
it doesn't matter.

We have fallen into the place
where everything is music.

The strumming and the flute notes
rise into the atmosphere,
and even if the whole world's harp
should burn up, there will still be
hidden instruments playing.

So the candle flickers and goes out.
We have a piece of flint, and a spark.

This singing art is sea foam.
The graceful movements come from a pearl
somewhere on the ocean floor.

Poems reach up like spindrift and the edge
of driftwood along the beach, wanting!

They derive
from a slow and powerful root
that we can't see.

Stop the words now.
Open the window in the center of your chest,
and let the spirits fly in and out.

-- Jalaluddin Rumi

Very cool.

Interesting that it turns out to be Rumi... my girlfriend loves his work... infact, his speaking to her through poetry helped me win her over. :wink:

An invisible bird flies over,
but casts a quick shadow.

What is the body? That shadow of a shadow
of your love, that somehow contains
the entire universe.

A man sleeps heavily,
though something blazes in him like the sun,
like a magnificent fringe sewn up under the hem.

He turns under the covers.
Any image is a lie:

    A clear red stone tastes sweet.

    You kiss a beautiful mouth, and a key
    turns in the lock of your fear.

    A spoken sentence sharpens to a fine edge.

    A mother dove looks for her nest,
    asking where, ku? Where, ku?

Where the lion lies down.
Where any man or woman goes to cry.
Where the sick go when they hope to get well.

Where a wind lifts that helps with winnowing,
and, the same moment, sends a ship on its way.

Where anyone says Only God Is Real.
Ya Hu! Where beyond where.

A bright weaver?s shuttle flashes back and forth,
east-west, Where-are-we? Ma ku? Maku.
like the sun saying Where are we?
as it weaves with the asking.


The Friend comes into my body
looking for the center, unable
to find it, draws a blade,
strikes anywhere.


There is a light seed grain inside.
You fill it with yourself, or it dies.

I?m caught in this curling energy! Your hair!
Whoever?s calm and sensible is insane!


Do you think I know what I?m doing?
That for one breath or half-breath I belong to myself?
As much as a pen knows what it?s writing,
or the ball can guess where it?s going next.
