Rumi and Silence

Posted Jun 10 2009 12:20am

Back into the Reedbed!

Time to ignore sensible advice,
to untie the knots our culture

ties us with. Cut to the quick!
Put cotton in both sentimental

ears. Go back intothe reedbed.
let cane sugar rise again in you

No rules or daily duties. Those
do not bring the peace of silence.

translated by Coleman Barks,
The Soul of Rumi
