We are the mirror as well as the face in itby Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi
English version by Coleman Barks
Original Language Persian/Farsi
We are the mirror as well as the face in it.
We are tasting the taste this minute
of eternity. We are pain
and what cures pain, both. We are
the sweet, cold water and the jar that pours.
|-- from Open Secret: Versions of Rumi, Translated by Coleman Barks / Translated by John Moyne|
