Homeless

Love is saying very softly into my ear,

“To be a prey is better than to be a hunter!

Be my fool and be a deluded one

moth-to-solar-flame

Renounce the high position of the sun, become a speck of dust!

Become a dweller at My door and be homeless

Do not pretend to be a candle, be a moth”

Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

The Pearl

A raindrop, dripping from a cloud.

Ashamed when it saw the sea.

‘Who am I  ? ,

where is a sea’, it said.

As it saw itself, from the eyes of humility

A shell embraced him and makes him a pearl.
