meet my queue

I said, meet me in the garden.
You know the one–
it is called Smiling Spring.
There are nightingales chirping away,
wine and candle lights,
and companions as soft as
pomegranate blossoms.
You think this all would sound so perfect!
But without you by my side,
what use is the Smiling Spring?
And when you are with me,
what use are pomegranate blossoms?
—  Rumi, ‘Meet Me in the Garden’ (trans. Shahram Shiva)

***** ALL THE PEOPLE THAT GET TOSSED ABOUT BY HISTORY... I ALWAYS HOPE THEY'LL BE REBORN INTO A NORMAL LIFE, FALL IN LOVE AND END UP LIVING HAPPILY SOMEWHERE. WHEN I SAW YOU, I THOUGHT "GOD DOES WONDERFUL THINGS" BE HAPPY THIS TIME IT SEEMS LIKE MY WISH HAS ALREADY COME TRUE.
