Wildflower *

photo by eob2/lg

Near the gardens edge,

where the woodland

begins, amongst an

unruly bed of weeds,

there thrives a singular

wild blooming beauty,

bathed in morning dew,

she awaits her Beloved

sun, His warmth caresses

each petal, she turns

into this touch, her face

begins to glow in His

morning golden light.

The Beguiled

Let yourself be silently drawn
by the stronger
pull of what you really love.
~~~ Rumi

His words

her opium,

inflames an

inner desire,

deeply she

inhales, closing

her eyes

listening intently

to His gentle

commands

The ME *

the

ME~

that

nobody

sees

the

ME~

beyond

this

shell

the

ME~

that

prayer

releases

the

ME~

that

breaks

free

the

ME~

that

soars

above

the

ME~

that

unfettered

Soul

the

ME~

that

only

the

Beloved

truly

knows

the

true

~ME

*Note: Though we would always like to be open about who we are, we always hold back a part of who we are. Which would lead us to a discussion about the psyche, follow the link at the bottom for a clearer understanding if you choose to.

Isolation with Hope (tanka)*

dark dreams encircled~

ominous thoughts void of life~

seek internal peace~

lowered in supplication~

divinity will enlighten

*Note: Each day though there seems no end in sight, do not let this darkness (fear) over take the light (hope). Please watch my musical choice for this verse in it entirety. It is quite beautiful visually.

According to the Encyclopedia of World Religions Sufis believe that: β€œthe human spirit being a direct emanation from the divine Command, is therefore an emanation of God himself, and could find its highest aim only in the obliteration of its illusory selfhood and absorption into the Eternal Reality. I love Rumi’s poetry it has always gave me comfort in moments of sadness or despair. For further understanding I have provided two links.
