“I will soothe you and heal you,
I will bring you roses.
I too have been covered with thorns.”

― Rumi
******

Roses are still blooming, and they will do so until the frost.



“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

What Was Said to the Rose

What was said to the rose that made it open
was said to me here in my chest.

What was told the Cypress that made it strong
and straight, what was

whispered the jasmine so it is what it is, whatever made
sugarcane sweet, whatever

was said to the inhabitants of the town of Chigil in
Turkestan that makes them

so handsome, whatever lets the pomegranate flower blush
like a human face, that is

being said to me now. I blush. Whatever put eloquence in
language, that's happening here.

The great warehouse doors open; I fill with gratitude,
chewing a piece of sugarcane,

in love with the one to whom every that belongs!

Poem by Jalaluddin Rumi

Nice to see you back Gisele.

 

 

 

-I said: How long will you drag my soul around the world?

He said: Wherever I drag you, come quickly. Say nothing.

 

I said: While I say nothing, do you want me

to burn? Are you saying: Come in and say nothing?

 

He smiled like a rose and said: Come in and see.

This fire is jasmine, green leaves and roses. Say nothing.

 

The fire became roses and spoke. It told me:

Except for our beloved’s love and kindness, say nothing-

 

Rumi

“You're beautiful, but you're empty...One couldn't die for you. Of course, an ordinary passerby would think my rose looked just like you. But my rose, all on her own, is more important than all of you together, since she's the one I've watered. Since she's the one I put under glass, since she's the one I sheltered behind the screen. Since she's the one for whom I killed the caterpillars (except the two or three butterflies). Since she's the one I listened to when she complained, or when she boasted, or even sometimes when she said nothing at all. Since she's my rose.”

Antoine de Saint-Exuperi from "The Little Prince."

My roses are all beginning to bloom, and they are full of buds.

“She cast her fragrance and her radiance over me. I ought never to have run away from her... I ought to have guessed all the affection that lay behind her poor little stratagems. Flowers are so inconsistent! But I was too young to know how to love her...”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
