Here is my interpretation of Rumi’s unnamed poem
In your light I learn to love.
In your beauty, how to make poems.
Rumi says that once we go into the light – here light means, our true nature – which is love and light. A pure, clear frequency of love and light – he learns how to truly love. Once a person finds this kind of real/divine love – one can start observing beauty. This beauty will then move the person to such a degree that they would want to write a poem about this beauty.
You dance inside my chest,
where no one sees you,
Rumi says that this love stays inside one’s heart – where no one else can see it. It is only felt by the person who has it in their heart and is a very personal, private experience.
but sometimes I do,
and that becomes this art.
Sometimes however, this love can give a person supernatural and surreal experiences which can inspire true art. This is God’s grace to this human being.
