A Mine of Rubies~Rumi

Last night I learned how to be a lover of God, To live in this world and call nothing my own. I looked inward and the beauty of my own emptiness filled me till dawn. It enveloped me like a mine of rubies. Its hue clothed me in red silk. Within the cavern of my soul I heard a voice of a lover crying, "Drink now! Drink now!" -- I took a sip and saw the vast ocean -- Wave upon wave caressed my soul. The lovers of God dance around And the circle of their steps becomes a ring of fire round my neck. Heaven calls me with its rain and thunder -- a hundred thousand cries yet I cannot hear ... All I hear is the call of my Beloved.
        ~Maulana Rumi
