Love poems from God

LOVE IS THE CURE

Love is the cure,

for your pain will keep giving birth to more pain
until your eyes constantly exhale love
as effortlessly as your body yields its scent.


WITH PASSION

With
passion pray. With
passion work. With passion make love.
With passion eat and drink and dance and play.
Why look like a dead fish
in this ocean
of
God?

From 'Love poems from God' by Rumi
translated by Daniel Ladinsky
