Listen and Heed the Story of the Reed

On my birthday, I hear the faint sound of the reedflute murmuring:

(Masnavi Book 1; verses 1-6)

Listen and heed the Reed-flute’s narration

It’s longing for unison after separation,

Since ‘twas torn from the reedbed to play

A mystical melody day by day

"To one i'll tell this story of mine;

one whose heart is torn of longing

So it can fell the pain of my separation."

Whoever’s been cut from their source

Turns back to seek a way of recourse

Back , O back to the unity whither I came

I was brought into diversity, I have no blame
