when the door is so wide open?

Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Live in silence.”

The Freshness ~ A Poem By Sufi Poet Rumi

The Freshness

When it’s cold and raining,
you are more beautiful.

And the snow brings me
even closer to your lips.

The inner secret, that which was never born,
you are that freshness, and I am with you now.

I can’t explain the goings,
or the comings. You enter suddenly,

and I am nowhere again.
Inside the majesty.

From Soul of Rumi

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
