What is the heart?

It is not human, and it is not imaginary.

I call it you. - Rumi

In 1244, the brilliant scholar Rumi and the wandering dervish Shams of Tabriz met and immediately fell into a deep spiritual connection with one another. The Glance - a mystical experience that occurs when the eyes of the lover and the beloved, parent and child, and friend and friend meet - taps a major, yet little explored, theme . . . in Rumi's poetry.

These powerful, complex and newly translated poems range from the ethereal to the everyday and reveal the unique place of human desire, love, and ecstasy, where in the meeting of eyes there exists not just the union of two souls, but the crux of the universe.
