Quote/Photo of the Day ~ The Beloved

SurfingYesterday at dawn
my friend said, how long
will this unconsciousness go on?

You fill yourself with
the sharp pain of love
rather than its fulfillment

I said “but I can’t get to you!
You are the whole dark night,
And I am one single candle

My life is upside down
because of you!”

The friend replied, I am
your deepest being
Quit talking about wanting me!

I said, “Then what is this

The friend:
Does a drop stay still in the ocean?

~ Rumi
