Rumi.. From Ibrahim, son of adham

Already,

Don’t you rush toward the garden?

That garden that contains the joy you seek.

Already, don’t you clear the way?

Smell that fragrance,

Seducing your soul.

You only need so little,

Let the scent draw your soul,

Make that scent the light of your eyes.

Cast this light on everyone you see,

Like prayer and ritual take this light

To all the senses that are linked together.

All grown from a single root.

Each giving strength to the other,

Each bringing sustenance to all.

Seeing with the eye increases the word,

As the word makes the eye more sharp.

The sharp eye makes sharper wit,

And all that senses grow.

Translation by Dunn, Dunn Mascetti and Nicholson, The Mathnawi
