Beauty of the Heart

a crystal dew drop
liquid kiss to break the thirst
last night’s dreams shattered

My response to Carpe Diem #1399 The Beauty of the Heart

Today’s poem has been taken from Masnavi: Teachings by Rumi:

The Beauty of the Heart

The beauty of the heart
is the lasting beauty:
its lips give to drink
of the water of life.
Truly it is the water,
that which pours,
and the one who drinks.
All three become one when
your talisman is shattered.
That oneness you can’t know
by reasoning.

 © Rumi (Taken from: Masnavi: Teachings of Rumi by E.H. Whinfield)
