This work is inspired by Rumi's poem Dark Sweetness.

The ground turns green. A drum begins.

Commentaries on the heart arrive in seven volumes.

 

The pen puts its head down

to give a dark sweetness to the page.

 

Planets go wherever they want.

Venus sways near the North Star.

The moon holds on to Leo.

 

The host who has no self is here.

We look into each other's eyes.

 

A child is still a child

even after it has learned the alphabet.

 

Solomon lifts his morning cup to the mountains.

Sit down in this pavilion,

and don't listen to religious bickering.

Be silent as we absorb the spring.
