It Felt Love ~ Poetry By Hafiz

Love written on hand in many languages

How

Did the rose

Ever open its heart

And give to this world

All its

Beauty?

It felt the encouragement of light

Against its

Being,

Otherwise,

We all remain

Too

Frightened.

Quote/Photo of the Day ~ Joy

capoiera

And joy is everywhere;
It is in the Earth’s green covering of grass;
In the blue serenity of the Sky;
In the reckless exuberance of Spring;
In the severe abstinence of grey Winter;
In the Living flesh that animates our bodily frame;
In the perfect poise of the Human figure, noble and upright;
In Living;
In the exercise of all our powers;
In the acquisition of Knowledge;
In fighting evils…
Joy is there
Everywhere.

Rabindranath Tagore

Indian Poet

The Dream Song ~ By My Friend Matt McMahon

Dancing in rain

The Dream Song
I live my life like a dream
And create my own reality
I close my eyes when I sleep
And keep them wide open when I dream
Nothing is out of reach
My fantasies are handed to me
It feels like magic
Some good, some tragic
Life is not what it seems
So I get to choose what to believe
To find the truth inside of me
I live my life like a dream

This World Is No Match For Your Love ~ Poem By Rumi

MauiThe World is no Match for your Love

This world is no match for your Love.
Being away from you
is death aiming to take my soul away.
My heart, so precious,
I won’t trade for a hundred thousand souls.
Your one smile takes it for free.

~ Rumi

Quote/Photo of the Day ~ The Beloved

SurfingYesterday at dawn
my friend said, how long
will this unconsciousness go on?

You fill yourself with
the sharp pain of love
rather than its fulfillment

I said “but I can’t get to you!
You are the whole dark night,
And I am one single candle

My life is upside down
because of you!”

The friend replied, I am
your deepest being
Quit talking about wanting me!

I said, “Then what is this
restlessness?”

The friend:
Does a drop stay still in the ocean?

~ Rumi
