beautiful man

Let Yourself Be Drawn

You miss the garden,

because you want a small fig from a random tree.

You do not meet the beautiful man.

You are joking with an old crone.

It makes me cry how he detains you.

Let yourself be silently drawn

by the stronger pull of what you really love.

~ Rumi translated by Coleman Barks
