Going with joy

Tomb Complex of Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi in Konya, Turkey


Ah...I think I know how I'm going to get there!
It's not doubts,
not darkness.
O the wind beneath the wings,
lift me to Lefke,
carry me to Konya.

'Tis Friday.
May I pray.
May He say kun
and I'm flown
with joy.
No clouds in mind.

The spirit of Nazim;
the mystic Jalaluddin
- two in Turkey.
Take me,
O wali.

Rumi say:
"If you're seeking,
seek us with joy,
for we live,
in the realm of joy."
So, I'm going
one fine day,
with joy,
with joy!
