From the Fountain of Fire

http://www.rigbys.demon.co.uk/fountain/fountainframe.htm


Find a True friend

find yourself a friend
who is willing to
tolerate you with patience

put to the test the essence
of the best incense
by putting it in fire

drink a cup of poison
if handed to you by a friend
when filled with love and grace

step into the fire
like the chosen prophet
the secret love will change
hot flames to a garden
covered with blossoms
roses and hyacinths and willow

spinning and throwing you
a true friend can hold you
like God and His universe

Rumi, Ghazal 994 Translation by Nader Khalili
