At The Twilight Poem by Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

At The Twilight

Rating: 2.9


At the twilight, a moon appeared in the sky;
Then it landed on earth to look at me.

Like a hawk stealing a bird at the time of prey;
That moon stole me and rushed back into the sky.

I looked at myself, I did not see me anymore;
For in that moon, my body turned as fine as soul.

The nine spheres disappeared in that moon;
The ship of my existence drowned in that sea.

The moon came last night Lit my dark hime up delightfully The sun came yesterday Shined my path of life willingly You came last moment Filled my empty heart full with love Now all you are absent I find me in nothing Oh; what a loser I am Because I was busy these days with all And forgot to know the true myself
