Immersed in His glow – Rumi

where have you gone
the settler of my soul
did you fly away
or hide in your home

as soon as you saw
the loyalty of my heart
you turned around and
flew like a bird

your vision captured
the wandering of our spirits
then away from the crowd
you journeyed in solitude

you went away so quick
as though you were
a morning breath
carrying a flower’s aroma

but you really didn’t fly away
as a bird or a breeze
you were created from God’s light
you went immersed in His glow

Translated by Nader Khalili in
“Rumi, Fountain of Fire”
