Say I Am You

I am the dust that floats in bright sunlight,
I am the sun, too, burning so bright.
 
Say to the dust, stay, and to the sun, keep
Moving in circles, wake us to light.
 
I am the mist of sweet early morning,
And the soft breathing, when evening is born.
 
I am the wind in swaying green branches,
taking my chances, as surf's pounding shore.
 
I am the tall mast, I am the deep keel,
Rudder and bowsprit, helmsman and wheel.
 
Now I am also the perilous reef,
the snares and delusions, that bring them to grief.
 
First I the silence, then I the choice,
to take form as this song, Now I the voice.
 
I am the candle, and the moth flying,
flirting with dying, as it goes round.
 
I the rose blooming, and at the same time,
Nightingale lost in, fragrance sublime.
 
All orders of being, galaxies turning,
Intelligence burning, in evolution.
 
I am the lifting, the falling away,
living and dying, night and the day.
 
In all things created, known and forgotten,
I am what is, and what is not.
 
Master of masters, one within all,
you who so know me, answer this call.
 
Say now the secret, say the word true,
say what the heart knows, say I am You.
 
 
Adapted from Rumi by Coleman Barks

You are a talented person and I really like this poem. It is inspiring, I want to make my own literature piece soon. You made us realize that we are part of the nature. I like how you described the beauty of the world. And the way you connect those nature's miracles to us is really amazing. I hope you continue what you're doing. You are really great in this field. I'm looking forward to see more of your post.

This is a wonderful poem, it makes us feel that we are truly connected with God's living creations. We are all different in a beautiful way, we are created with our own flaws. Comparing ourselves with nature shows how we are similar to each other, plants and flowers grow and bloom. Just like us human beings, we grow and bloom from all the experiences we go through in our lives. To take care of nature is also to take care of ourselves, each and everyone has their own beauty within.
