Life is meaningful, only when one wishes to make it. We are creatures of time and we’ll wither away in it. The little moments of joy we find and create are all that will live with us.

Looking for Your Face

Poetry by,
Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī

From the beginning of my life
I have been looking for your face
but today I have seen it

Today I have seen
the charm, the beauty,
the unfathomable grace
of the face that I was looking for

Today I have found you
and those who laughed
and scorned me yesterday
are sorry that they were not looking as I did

I am bewildered by the magnificence
of your beauty
and wish to see you
with a hundred eyes

My heart has burned with passion
and has searched forever
for this wondrous beauty
that I now behold

I am ashamed
to call this love human
and afraid of God
to call it divine

Your fragrant breath
like the morning breeze
has come to the stillness of the garden
You have breathed new life into me
I have become your sunshine
and also your shadow

My soul is screaming in ecstacy
Every fiber of my being
is in love with you

Your effulgence
has lit a fire in my heart
And you have made radiant
for me
the earth and sky

My arrow of love
has arrived at the target
I am in the house of mercy
and my heart
is a place of prayer

Forever dedicated to my Rooh Paree.
Mwaaaaaah Love You

Blue Bird

Smile blue bird
Your feathers are bright

Smile blue bird
Your chirp is real nice

Smile blue bird
The air is free for you to glide

Smile blue bird
You are the one for whom the sky opens wide, but only…

When you smile with delight 🙂

Dedicated to a blue bird I knew in my dreams, and now I know in real.
