Fierce Courtesy

The connection to the Friend
is secret and very fragile.

The image of the Friendship
is in how you love,

the grace and the delicacy,
the subtle talking together
in full prostration, outside of time.

When you are there,
remember the fierce courtesy
of the one with you.

Your time in compiling this is appreciated. This one in particular has become a favorite. Fairly new to RUMI. Working my way through them. For the First time. No doubt I shall return time and again.
