The seed market

Can you find another market like this?
Where, which your one rose you can buy hundreds of rose gardens?
Where, for one seed get a whole wilderness?
For one weak breath a divine wind?

You've been fearful of being absorbed in the ground, or drawn up in the air.
Now, your water drop lets go and falls into the ocean, where it came from.
It no longer has the form it had, but it's still water.

The essence is the same.
This giving up is not a repenting.
It's a deep honoring of yourself.
When the ocean comes to you as a lover, 
marry at once, quickly, for God's sake!
Don't postpone it!
Existence has no better gift.

No amount of searching will find this.
A perfect falcon, for no reason has
landed on your shoulder, and become yours.

- Rumi
