Color and Before - A poem by Sultan Valad (Rumi's son)

Spring makes red and white flowers appear on the trees,
But the spring that is the origin of colors is colorless.
Understand what I have said, and give up all talk;
Run to the Origin without color and unite yourself to it.

~Sultan Valad (Rumi's son - Turkey, 13th century)
