Walking In The Garden With My Lover

Walking in the garden with my lover
I was distracted by a rose
My love scolded me saying,
"How could you look at a rose
with my face so close"

Jalaludin Rumi

When you wish to say something that is of importance to you and that comes from your heart - there is a great probabilty that someone has said it already before you in a more beautiful way. May be in a poem.

If this is the case - and since his words can never be your words, just be humble and lower your voice in front of a great storyteller or poet and listen again to what he said.

The power of words come from experience, the wounds of life and the fact that both have been overcome and ectasty, love and joy have been found.

Yesterday a soft warm rain started falling just before the night came. I took some pictures in the last rays of the fading light.

When you plant a tree
every leaf that grows will tell you,
what you sow will bear fruit.
So if you have any sense, my friend
don't plant anything but love,
you show your worth by what you seek.
Water flows to those who want purity
wash your hands of all desires and
come to the table of Love
Do you want me to tell you a secret?
The flowers attract the most beautiful lover
with their sweet smile and scent
If you let God weave the verse in your poem
people will read it forever

Jalaludin Rumi

The greatest beauty shows itself in simplicity
always has been like that

Sending out magic to us

If you can't smell the fragance
don't come into the garden of Love.
If you are unwilling to undress
don't enter into the stream of Truth
Stay where you are, don't come our way

Jalaludin Rumi

A rain drop kept in place because the flower desires it to stay there.

There was great silence except for the raindrops falling on green leaves. It got darker every second. A magical moment when the rain succeeded in convincing the flowers to open up their petals again and to not go to the sleep yet.

I am sharing this moment with these pictures and Rumi's words
