Nothingness and Being

-

|

I AM ABUNDANT, I AM NOTHING,

MY PLACE ONLY KNOWS BEING BY YOUR SIDE.

SENDING MY LONGING WITH THE WIND,

I PLANTED A KISS ON YOUR CHEEK.

MULTIPLYING WITH SEEDS,

SOAKED BY THE RAIN,

I WRAPPED MYSELF AROUND THE SAPLING.

SEEDING IS OVER,

NOW I AM NOTHING.

SAPLING TIME IS OVER,

NOW I AM A TREE.

FLOWERING IS OVER,

NOW I AM FRUIT.

FRUITING IS OVER,

NOW I AM SEED AGAIN.

I AM NOTHING,

I AM SOMETHING.

A DAY,

A NIGHT.

A SORROW,

A LAUGHTER.

I AM YOU,

I AM ME.

I DON’T KNOW MY PLACE,

I AM NAMELESS,

IN MY LONELINESS I AM ZERO,

WITH YOU, I AM ONE.

WHAT DO I KNOW OF DEATH?

I DIE AND REVIVE AGAIN AND AGAIN.

I AM RUMI, I AM ORHAN VELI,

I AM SHAKESPEARE, I AM FROST,

I AM MAYA ANGELOU,

I AM BERIL YABAR…
