Behind The Scenes Poem by Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

Behind The Scenes

Rating: 3.1


Is it your face
that adorns the garden?
Is it your fragrance
that intoxicates this garden?
Is it your spirit
that has made this brook
a river of wine?
Hundreds have looked for you
and died searching
in this garden
where you hide behind the scenes.
But this pain is not for those
who come as lovers.
You are easy to find here.
You are in the breeze
and in this river of wine.

Outstanding composition where the poet is immersed in the eternal beauty of the Almighty God with whom people seek to unite through their focused devotion. Great Sufi poetry.
