"Drumsound rises on the air,
its throb, my heart.

A voice inside the beat says,
'I know you're tired,
but come. This is the way."
— Rumi

I really love that second quote.
I am too lazy to figure out how to quote someone on here, that's why I just wrote it.
I love Rumi ~lots of quotes on twitter.
standing on the moon
with nothing left to do
a lovely view of heaven

“Bring the pure wine of
love and freedom.
But sir, a tornado is coming.
More wine, we'll teach this storm
A thing or two about whirling."

I was just introduced to Rumi literally yesterday by a Deadhead friend on Facebook. Nice (and very quintessentially Dead-style) synchronicity in finding this thread here on these forums. I am definitely intrigued and plan to read more of Rumi's works in the days to come.
...there were days I know when all we ever wanted was to learn and love and grow

This poem really resonates with me right now


Some Kiss We Want

There is some kiss we want with our whole lives
our whole lives, the touch of
spirit on the body.
Seawater
begs the pearl to break its shell.
and the lily, how passionately
it needs some wild darling!
At night I open the window and ask
the moon to come and press its
face against mine.
Breathe into me.
Close the language-door and
open the love window.
the moon
won't use the door, only the window

~ Rumi

"And still, after all this time, the Sun has never said to the Earth,
"You owe me."
Look what happens with love like that.
It lights up the sky."
— Rumi


So, Rumi's birthday is September 30, 1207.
September 30, 2011 is the first of three Red Rocks shows.
I may invite Rumi to the show.

Time for a couple more:

"Dancing is not just getting up painlessly, like a leaf blown on the wind;
dancing is when you tear your heart out and rise out of your body to hang suspended between the worlds."


"In the house of lovers, the music never stops, the walls are made of songs & the floor dances"

You were born with potential.
You were born with goodness and trust.
You were born with ideals and dreams.
You were born with greatness.
You were born with wings.
You are not meant for crawling, so don't.
You have wings.
Learn to use them and fly.
