five senses and the six directions

Love has nothing to do with
the five senses and the six directions:
its goal is only to experience
the attraction exerted by the Beloved.
Afterwards, perhaps, permission
will come from God:
the secrets that ought to be told with be told
with an eloquence nearer to the understanding
that these subtle confusing allusions.
The secret is partner with none
but the knower of the secret:
in the skeptic’s ear
the secret is no secret at all.
– Rumi

One thought on “five senses and the six directions


  1. From the clear center of my heart

    there are no edges to my loving you

    I’ve heard it said there’s a window that opens

    from one mind to another

    but if there were no wall,

    what need of installing a window?

    Rumi
