In the wine of love

Poetry in Persian:
bu ali andar ghubaarey naaqa gum
dastey rumi pardaaey mohmil garift (Rumi)

Bu Ali (Avicenna) is lost in camel's dust
Rumi's hand caught the curtain of The Hidden!

The logician scholar trying with the power of his logic and knowledge to reach the Beloved.. but he is still lost in the dust sprung by the feet of The Beloved's camel.
Rumi who is drunkard with the wine of love.. his hand reached the last curtains hiding the Beloved.
