    I'm looking for a particular poem and I don't know the title. It goes something like this:
    We wake in the morning empty and afraid,
    Do not go to the library to read,
    take the lute down from the wall,

    As I sit down to a book of Rumi's poetry, I am reading in two different worlds at once. To follow where Rumi's thoughts go, I have to stretch myself. I can see old desires fall behind like stepping stones as love's new face beckons me. I see a giant sun cloaked in darkness, underlying every phase of phenomenal existence. Around the corolla of that sun, every loving impulse ever conceived still radiates in an eternal now.

Best Poem of Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

A Moment Of Happiness

A moment of happiness,
you and I sitting on the verandah,
apparently two, but one in soul, you and I.
We feel the flowing water of life here,
you and I, with the garden's beauty
and the birds singing.
The stars will be watching us,
and we will show them
what it is to be a thin crescent moon.
You and I unselfed, will be together,
indifferent to idle speculation, you and I.
The parrots of heaven will be cracking sugar
as we laugh together, you and I.
In one form upon this earth,
and in another form in a timeless sweet land.
