The Wedding Night 

The Wedding Night

When Rumi died
he called it his "wedding night."

I also hope
that I will at last be joined
to that larger being
I have been struggling
to become
for so long.

Indeed, we have celebrated
many times over,
love pouring
from one to another
in a rite of sacramental union.

In that other place
I will look back
with curiosity
and compassion
on who I was before,
who I am now,
the connection
between them
and the revised self.

In the meantime,
I will prepare
my bridal clothes,
my inner joy
as I await
an unknown ceremony
of becoming,
and hear new music,
dance at last in a more abandoned way.
