! In The Spirit Of Rumi - 3 - Poem by Michael Shepherd

My Beloved said

When, my dearest one, you were asleep,
sleeping in Myself, I came to you

and looked into your mirror
to see whom I might see

and when you wake,
then you will see My breath

still moist upon
that mirror.

    god, and this was so gorgeous up until the 'mirror of your heart' in the last bit. i wonder if you couldn't clean the cheese out of it. i mean, the rest of this poem is pure wow.
