What was in that candle's light?

Water from Your Spring

What was in that candle's light
that opened and consumed me so quickly?

Come back my friend! The form of our love
is not a created form.

Nothing can help me but that beauty.
There was a dawn I remember

when my soul heard something
from your soul. I drank water

from your spring and felt
the current take me.

from The Essential Rumi, translated by Coleman Barks
