Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī, Quatrains

Inside water, a waterwheel turns.
A star circulates with the moon.
We live in the night ocean wondering.
What are those lights?


Earlier, to be ready,
I loosened the leg bindings.
Today, your scent. Gratefulness
rises on the air.


I pretended to leap
to see if I could live there.
Someday I must actually arrive there
or nothing will be left to arrive.


Being is not what it seems,
nor non-being. The world's
existence is not
in the world
