An Illuminated Rumi : Poem In Your Post
Let us choose one another as Companions.
Let us sit at one another's feet.
Come a little closer now,
so that we may see each other's faces.
Inside we share so many secrets —
Do not believe we are simply what these eyes can see.
Now we are music together
sharing one cup and an armful of roses.
- Mawlana Jalal Ad-din Mohammed Rumi
For a gloriously crafted collection of Rumi poems, translated by Coleman Barks and illuminated by Michael Green, start here.
You will want your own copy to peruse in contemplation, so why not take a mindful stroll to your local bookseller to enjoy the many wonders there too?
