Spring, The Luminous Face

by Jon Katz

“Spring, your luminous face,

resembles the face of the Friend

have you borrowed it from him?

You are a feast for the eyes

yet your essence is hidden

like that of the soul.

The trials of winter are over

beautiful rose, lift your head and smile

the thunder has announced the arrival,

The lily urges her young buds

to open their eyes and behold

the splendor of the Garden.

Stirred by the wind that carries

the sweet scent of union

the branches dance in celebration.”

— Rumi
