More Rumi

Someone who goes with a half loaf of bread to a small place

that fits like a nest around him,

someone who wants no more,

who's not himself longed for by anyone else.

He is a letter to everyone. You open it. It says,

LIVE.

Rumi

Anyone separated from someone he loves understands what I say:

anyone pulled from a source longs to go back.

At any gathering i am there, mingling

in the laughing and the grieving.

A friend to each, but few will hear

the secrets hidden within

the notes.No ears for that.

Body flowing out of spirit.

Spirit flowing from body.

No concealing that mixing.

Rumi

Thank you Inda for the added Rumi.

I am going to quote one of your older Rumi sayings:


Originally posted by Inda:
Let us fall in love again
and scatter gold dust all over the world.
Let us become a new spring
and feel the breeze drift in the heavens' scent.
Let us dress the earth in green,
and like the sap of a young tre e
let the grace from within sustain us.
Let us carve gems out of our stony hearts
and let them light our path to Love.
The glance of Love is crystal clear
and we are blessed by its light.

~Rumi

Thank you Inda.

Like yoko, I will find one of your other Rumi poems.

 

"I am the dust in the sunlight, I am the ball of the sun . . .
I am the mist of morning, the breath of evening . . . .
I am the spark in the stone, the gleam of gold in the metal . . . .
The rose and the nightingale drunk with its fragrance.
I am the chain of being, the circle of the spheres,
The scale of creation, the rise and the fall.
I am what is and is not . . .
I am the soul in all."

- Rumi

 

I am adding another poem by Rumi:

The Meaning of Love

Both light and shadow
are the dance of Love.
Love has no cause;
it is the astrolabe of God's secrets.
Lover and Loving are inseparable
and timeless.

Although I may try to describe Love
when I experience it I am speechless.
Although I may try to write about Love
I am rendered helpless;
my pen breaks and the paper slips away
at the ineffable place
where Lover, Loving and Loved are one.

Every moment is made glorious
by the light of Love.

Rumi

Thank you for all your nice replies.



“Pull the thorn of existence out of the heart! Fast!
For when you do, you will see thousands of rose gardens in yourself.”

― Rumi
******

“When the rose is gone and the garden faded
you will no longer hear the nightingale's song.
The Beloved is all; the lover just a veil.
The Beloved is living; the lover a dead thing.
If love withholds its strengthening care,
the lover is left like a bird without care,
the lover is left like a bird without wings.
How will I be awake and aware
if the light of the Beloved is absent?
Love wills that this Word be brought forth.”

― Rumi, Teachings of Rumi

This is a lovely thread, and Rumi is one of my most beloved poets of all time.
