Red with desire
the moon rises,
each burning light-thread
rippling through my waters
waves of ecstasy,
awakening within
a dawn of sweet silence,
an intoxication blooming
in a heaven of clarity.

Junnaiyd says there is a sobriety that contains all drunkenness, but there is no drunkenness that contains all sobriety. Coleman Barks, Rumi, The Book of Love
