Double Eye

You've given me your terrible Double Eye
That sees all things as empty and as You.
You scathe all flesh to bone, flame bone to Light
How could I survive such horror, and splendour?

- Jalal-ud-Din Rumi

Rumi is right on these days.



  1. Wow. "Sees all things as empty and as You." Pretty much nailed it, I'd say. He sure says a lot in a very few words. Just so matter of fact, too. I love that about him.

  2. It seems I can't comment as myself. Blogger is having issues.

    One of my favorite poems has him saying - you might think I say a lot, writing all these poems. But the true me has never said a word.
