What was said to the rose that made it open was said
to me here in my chest.

what was told the cypress that made it strong
and straight, what was

whispered the jasmine so it is what it is, whatever made
sugar cane sweet, whatever

was said to the inhabitants of the town of Chigil in
Turkestan that makes them

so handsome, whatever lets the pomegranate flower blush
like a human face, that is

being said to me now. I blush. Whatever put eloquence in
language, that’s happening here.

The great warehouse stores open; I fill with gratitude,
chewing a piece of sugarcane,

in love with the one to whom every that belongs!

Rumi
