"Say I am You" by Jelaluddin Rumi
I am dust particles in sunlight, I am the round sun.
Among the bits of dust I say, Stay.
To the sun, keep moving.
I am morning mist, and breathing the evening.
I am the wind in the top of a grove,
and surf on the cliff.
Mast, rudder, helmsman and Kiel,
I am also the coral reef they founder on.
I am a tree with a trained parrot in its branches.
Silence, thought and voice.
The musical air coming through a flute,
a spark from stone, a flickering in metal . Both candle,
and the moth crazy around him.
Rose and the Nightingale lost in the fragrance.
I am all orders of being, the circling galaxy,
the evolutionary intelligence of the elevator, and waste.
What is, and what is not .
You who know Jelaluddin you a the say in all, who I am. say I am You.
