Everybody is a genius.
But if you judge a fish
by its ability to climb a tree,
it will live its whole life
believing that it is stupid.
Moonlight floods the whole sky
from horizon to horizon;
how much it can fill your room
depends on its windows.

I swear, since seeing Your face,
the whole world is fraud and fantasy
The garden is bewildered as to what is leaf or blossom.
The distracted birds
can’t distinguish the birdseed from the snare.
A house of love with no limits,
a presence more beautiful than venus or the moon,
a beauty whose image fills the mirror of the heart.
Rumi, The Divani Shamsi Tabriz XV
Even After All this time
The Sun never says to the Earth,
“You owe me.”
Look What happens
With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.
