Translation of Rumi


‘Today, like every other day, we wake up empty

and frightened. Don’t open the door to the study

and begin reading.

Take down a musical instrument.
Let the beauty we love be what we do.

There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground’


(Mevlana Rumi Mathnawi, trans. by Coleman Barks)
