Art as Flirtation and Surrender

In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest, where no one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art

Rumi Poem 5

"One went to the door of the Beloved and knocked. A voice asked, 'Who is there?' He answered, 'It is I.' The voice said, 'There is no room for Me and Thee.' The door was shut. After a year of solitude and deprivation he returned and knocked. A voice from within asked, 'Who is there?' The man said, 'It is Thee.' The door was opened for him."

-- Jelaluddin Rumi

If you are irritated by every rub. how will you be polished? how very close how very close is your soul with mine i know for sure everything you think goes through my mind i am with you now and doomsday not like a host caring for you at a feast alone with you i am happy all the times the time i offer my life or the time you gift me your love offering my life is a profitable venture each life i give .

you pay in turn a hundred lives again in this house there are a thousand dead and still souls making you stay as this will be yours a handful of earth cries aloud i used to be hair or i used to be bones and just the moment when you are all confused leaps forth a voice hold me close i'm love and i'm always yours .

If I love myself I love you. I have forgotten all my learning. With passion pray. but from knowing you I have become a scholar. Do you love yourself more than you love me? The beloved replied. If you want to live. If I love you I love myself. die in Love.Reason is powerless in the expression of Love. With passion make love. I have lost all my strength. I have died to myself and I live for you. The way of our prophets is the way of Truth. I am present only for you. die in Love if you want to remain alive. With passion work. Love alone is capable of revealing the truth of Love and being a Lover. but from your power I am able. I’ve disappeared from myself and my attributes. Do You Love Me? A lover asked his beloved. Why look like a dead fish in this ocean of God? . With passion eat and drink and dance and play.
