Imago Dei, a Poem by Rumi

I asked my heart:
"Why do we need a mirror for?"
"So you can see the reflections of body image in it.
You only paint over the metal frame of an external mirror,
but your inner mirror
is the pure reflection of your divine soul.
The mirror of your soul
won't reflect the image of the Beloved,
until your face has fully acquired
the divine reflections of God."

گزيده ابياتي از ديوان كبيرحضرت مولانا

گفتم اي دل آينه ازبهرچيست
تاببيند هركسي كوشكل كيست
آينه آهن براي لون هاست
آينه سيماي جان سنگين بهاست
آينه جان نيست الا روي يار
روي آن ياري كه باشد زآن يار
