It Felt Love

IMG_7312By Hafiz

How

Did the rose

Ever open it’s heart

And give this world

All its

Beauty?

It felt the encouragement of light

Against its

Being,

Otherwise,

We all remain

Too

Frightened.

  1. Thank you for this V Day gem! Boomeranging back some more Sufi poetry:

    You’ve no idea how hard I’ve looked for a gift to bring You.
    What’s the point of bringing gold to the goldmine, or water to the Ocean.
    Everything I came up with was like taking spices to the Orient.
    It’s no good giving my heart and soul because you already have these.
    So- I’ve brought you a mirror. Look at yourself and remember me.

    ~ Jalaluddin Rumi
