Rumi o roślinach Jalal al-Din Rumi via Colman Barks

…plants have an inner being, and sepa­ra­te ways of tal­king and feeling… rośli­ny mają życie wewnętrz­ne. mają swo­je spo­so­by mówie­nia i odczu­wa­nia.

Plants have an inner being, and sepa­ra­te ways of tal­king and feeling.
An ear of corn bends in tho­ught.
Tulip, so embar­ras­sed. Pink rose deci­ding to open a
com­pe­ting sto­re. A bun­ch of gra­pes sits with its feet stuck out.
Nar­cis­sus gos­si­ping abo­ut iris.
Wil­low, what do you learn from run­ning water?
— Humi­li­ty.
Red apple, what has the Friend tau­ght you?
— To be sour.
Peach tree, why so low?
— To let you reach. Look at the poplar, tall but
witho­ut fru­it or flo­wer.
— Yes, if I had tho­se, I’d be self-absor­bed
like you. I gave up self to wat­ch the enli­gh­te­ned ones.
Pome­gra­na­te questions quin­ce,
— Why so pale?
— For the pearl you hid insi­de me.
— How did you disco­ver my secret?
Your lau­gh.
The core of the seen and unse­en uni­ver­ses
smi­les, but remem­ber, smi­les come best from tho­se who weep…
