POEMS: “Reality and appearance” by Rumi

giphy.giftigrito 

 

‘Tis light makes colour visible: at night

Red, green, and russet vanish from thy sight.

So to thee light by darkness is made known:

Since God had none, He, seeing all, denies

Himself eternally to mortal eyes.

From the dark jungle as a tiger bright,

Form from the viewless Spirit leaps to light.

by Mawlawi Rumi
