The Taste Of Morning – Rumi

Times knife slides from the sheath,
As a fish from where it swims.

Being closer and closer is the desire
Of the body. Don’t wish for union!

There’s a closeness beyond that. Why
Would God want a second God? Fall in

Love in such a way that it frees you from
Any connectivity. Love is the soul’s

Light, the taste of morning, no me, no
‘we’, no claim to ‘being’. These words

Are the smoke the fire gives off as it
Absolves its defects, as eyes in silence,

Tears, face, love cannot be said.

Rumi

      Happy travels, Spain is an interesting land. There are many traces of Islamic influence in their culture and language, leftover from the time of the Moors. The Alhambra palace in Granada is stunning! Have good times, lee

        Hey Lee!
        Thanks for your comment.
        Indees it is. It is an amazing country and especially the south is breathtaking. Granada is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen and the arabic influence is incredible. The flair of arabic/spanish is authentic.
        I really love it.
