by Rumi

You come to us from another world
From beyond the stars and void of space.
galaxy, purple, and stars image
Transcendent, pure. Of unimaginable beauty.
Bringing with you the essence of love.
You transform all who are touched by you
Mundane concerns, troubles, and sorrows
dissolve in your presence.
summer, beach, and sand image
Bringing joy to ruler and ruled
To peasant and king.
You bewilder us with your grace
All evils transform into goodness.
You are the master alchemist
You light the fire of love
in earth and sky
in heart and soul of every being
lion, animal, and tiger image
Through your love
existence and nonexistence merge
all opposites unite.
All that is profane becomes sacred again.
