What a miracle

Glorious is the moment we sit in the palace, you and I
Two forms, two faces, but a single soul, you and I
The flowers will blaze and bird cries shower us with immortality
The moment we enter the garden, you and I
All the stars of heaven will run out to gaze at us
As we burn as the full moon itself, you and I
The fired-winged birds of heaven will rage with envy
In that place we laugh ecstatically, you and I
What a miracle, you and I, entwined in the same nest
What a miracle, you and I, one love, one lover, one Fire
In this world and the next, in an ecstasy without end.

— Rumi

    A Rumi work that I had not read until now, thank you!
    Beautiful imagery associated. Warm, cozy.

    Like a little bird
    in a nest,
    Peep, Peep!

    Noticed the cover of the book by Andrew Harvey…made me think of
    Caspar Friedrich’s painting: Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog,
    and Friedrich Nietzsche!
