You Are the Truth

Imagining is like feeling around
in a dark lane, or washing
your eyes with blood.

You are the truth
from foot to brow. Now,
what else would you like to know?

– Jelaluddin Rumi, translated by Coleman Barks / in waiting for a translation from Jawid Mojaddedi, best Rumi translator
