When it’s cold and raining,
you are more beautiful.
And the snow brings me
even closer to your lips.
The inner secret, that which was never born,
you are that freshness, and I am with you now.
I can’t explain the goings,
or the comings. You enter suddenly,
and I am nowhere again.
Inside the majesty.
This beautiful sweet poem from Rumi talks about the blossoming of a beautiful life – his life has become more beautiful because of her arrival. He speaks about how she exudes and radiates more beauty when it’s cold and raining because he gets to be closer to her, to her face. There is nothing more that matters to him but her.
He’s been dreaming of her; of the freshness that only wonderful love can bring. Her arrival brings new beginnings- a renewal of faith in everything that can’t be seen but be felt. In winter, he is closer to her and the warmth of their kiss helps them engulf the coldness of the snowfall. The kiss binds them and reminds them that they are both children of the sun; the source of light and love.
His life has been that of a floater, full of arrivals and departures, and he can’t explain everything that he has experienced; his full of transience. Then she came. She arrived out of the blue and he knew right there and then that his life was changed forever. Before, he might have spent days alone, bored, and longing for love. Then when he least expected it, she came.
Inside he is love and magic, and he loves being inside her. Inside her heart, he finds meaning, strength, awe, and majesty. He is King and she is queen in their kingdom from within. Their love brings so much power in a tender form.
The freshness reminds us of morning dew on a leaf, that kind of feeling when you wake to a beautiful sight in the nature, a new day, how the sun slowly rises up and it kisses the skin softly. It’s the same case with a newfound love – it surprises you, it makes you smile even when you are alone and you can’t control it. It gives you so much positive energies, you feel like you can do everything you want. It makes you a better person and you can’t help but live inside the heart of the one you really love.
