A Moment Of Happiness by Rumi

A Moment Of Happiness by Rumi

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.


  1. Rumi and Hafiz are two of my favorite poets. Ecstatic love. Thank you for sharing and for visiting Tovarysh! You know, I’ve always felt it would be the physicists who would help explain the ‘real ‘ world and how things are. Best of luck to you.


  2. You’ve done a beautiful job of appealing to all of the senses throughout this piece. I like the way you enable your readers to feel the very essence of the piece.
