in front of the sun

reason, get lost
there’s no room for you here
even if you turned yourself into a single hair
you still couldn’t fit inside love
morning comes, but that doesn’t change a thing
whatever candle you lit in your mind
would look foolish in front of the sun

–Jalal al-Din Rumi (from The Rubais of Rumi, 2007)
