Transactions with Beauty

Lovers find secret places

inside this violent world

where they make transactions

with beauty.

Reason says, Nonsense.

I have walked and measured the walls here.

There are no places like that.

Love says, There are.

Rumi, from “Secret Places,” *Bridge to the Soul: Journeys Into the
Music and Silence of the Heart* — as rendered by Coleman Barks

Thank You – Robert Breszny for this find
