RUMI



THE ALCHEMY OF LOVE

You come to us


from another world


From beyond the stars


and void of space.


Transcendent, Pure,


Of unimaginable beauty,


Bringing with you


the essence of love

You transform all


who are touched by you.


Mundane concerns,


troubles, and sorrows


dissolve in your presence,


Bringing joy


to ruler and ruled


To peasant and king

 
You bewilder us


with your grace.


All evils


transform into


goodness.


You are the master alchemist.


You light the fire of love


in earth and sky


in heart and soul


of every being.

Through your love


existence and nonexistence merge.


All opposites unite.

All that is profane

becomes sacred again.
