Another Great Master: Jalaludin Rumi
I have loved Rumi since ... well, I can't remember when. He is timeless. No one expresses love, longing and the pain of yearning like Rumi does.
" What's the lover to do
but humiliate himself,
If he kisses your hair,
don't wonder why."
"I've broken through to longing
now, filled with a grief I have
felt before, but never like this."
"The center leads to love.
Soul opens the creation core,
Hold on to your particular pain,
That too can take you to God."
My Lips Got Lost
My lips got lost on the
way to the kiss -
that's how drunk I
Luckily though I still connected
with the most tender part
The moon conceived - what
a wild looking baby
we are going to
Okay, I'll Do It
Okay, I will do it:
Sing longer songs tonight because
You're just damn hard to please,
And I guess I am
still courting you, trying to get
into your soul's knickers.
