At night we fall into each other with such grace

by Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi

English version by Coleman Barks
Original Language Persian/Farsi

At night we fall into each other with such grace.
When it's light, you throw me back
like you do your hair.

Your eyes now drunk with God,
mine with looking at you,
one drunkard takes care of another.

-- from Open Secret: Versions of Rumi, Translated by Coleman Barks / Translated by John Moyne
