A Lantern by RUMI

A Lantern

You so subtle you can slip into my soul,
How would it be if you, for a time,
were living visibly here?

So hidden you’re hidden from hidden things
you enter me, and my hiddenness
shines like a lantern

You Solomon, who understands bird-language
and speaks it, what will you say now
through my mouth?

King, whose bow no one can draw,
use me for an arrow

Shams is the way I know God.
-RUMI
