The Most Alive Moment

The most alive moment comes
When those who love each other
Meet each other’s eyes
And in what flows between them then.

To see your face in a crowd of others,
Or alone in a frightening street,
I weep for that.

Our tears improve the earth.
The time you scolded me.
Your gratitude, your laughing,
Always your qualities increase the soul.

Seeing you is a wine that does not muddle or numb.

We sit inside the cypress shadow,
Where amazement and clear thought,
Twine their slow growth into us.

– Rumi.
