Drunken Masters: Rumi


Someone reminded me, the other day, what a great romantic poet Rumi is. He makes me think that Master’s can be drunk on more than just wine.

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and right-doing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.”

“Forget safety.
Live where you fear to live.
Destroy your reputation.
Be notorious.”

“I want to see you.

Know your voice.

Recognize you when you
first come ’round the corner.

Sense your scent when I come
into a room you’ve just left.

Know the lift of your heel,
the glide of your foot.

Become familiar with the way
you purse your lips
then let them part,
just the slightest bit,
when I lean in to your space
and kiss you.

I want to know the joy
of how you whisper
“more”
― Rumi
