Rumi – A Cap to Wear in Both Worlds

Rumi – A Cap to Wear in Both Worlds

There is a passion in me that doesn’t
long for anything from another human being.

I was given something else, a cap to wear
in both worlds.  It fell off. No matter.

One morning I went to a place beyond dawn.
A source of sweetness that flows
and is never less.  I have been shown
a beauty that would confuse both worlds,

But I won’t cause that uproar.  I am
nothing but a head set on the ground
as a gift to Shams.

Midnight, but your forehead
shines with dawn.  You dance as

you come to me and curl by curl
undo the dark.  Let jealousy end.

There’s a strange frenzy in my head,
of birds flying,
each particle circulating on its own.
Is the one I love everywhere?

And indeed, SAP Hybris, the commerce arm of the German software giant, is finally talking about being — among other things — a "marketing cloud." It´s been a long time coming. Tracking the progress of Hybris over the last fewyears, I´d perceived an avoidance of discussing the whole marketing cloud space — an emphasis, instead, on front office microservices.
