In Silence

Expression always falls short of meaning.
The Prophet said, "Whoever knows God, his tongue falters."
Speech is an astrolabe in its reckoning.
How much does it really know of the sky and the sun?
Or of that Sky which holds this heaven as a speck;
and that Sun which shows this sun to be a grain of sand?

Mathnawi II: 3013-3015
Version by Camille and Kabir Helminski
"Rumi: Daylight", Threshold Books, 1994


Hush! And say no more...
The tip of a tongue doesn't hold any secret
Don't ever try to explain...
Kiss me on my lips..
