One Song

All religions

all this singing

is one song.

 

The differences are just

illusion and vanity.

 

The sun’s light looks a little different

on this wall than it does on that wall,

and a lot different on this other one,

but it’s still one light.

 

We have barrowed these clothes,

These time and place personalities

From a light, and when we praise,

we’re pouring them back in.

 

~Rumi
