You only need smell the wine

by Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi

English version by Andrew Harvey
Original Language Persian/Farsi

You only need smell the wine
For vision to flame from each void--
Such flames from wine's aroma!
Imagine if you were the wine.

-- from The Way of Passion: A Celebration of Rumi, by Andrew Harvey
