Am I Object

am I object
am I shadow
am I light
have I not asked the moon
have I not questioned you beloved
have I not stood in the darkness searching
and now your eyes watch mine
as I look into this cup of wine
are you object
are you shadow
are you light

    1. Thanks Brendan… the sufi path in which the metaphors of beloved and wine describe the nature of faith and rapture are quite powerful in the works of Rumi and other poets. Never fail to inspire.
