Watercolor Journaling – Day 5

When someone asks what is there to do, light the candle in their hand.

Jalal al-Din Muhammad Rumi was a thirteenth century Sufi mystic who left behind an extraordinary body of luminous poetry filled with profound spiritual insight.

My favorite translator of Rumi’s poetry is Andrew Harvey, a brilliant past professor. He authored, “The Way of Passion: A celebration of Rumi.” This book is rich and deep in thought-filled passages and love, Rumi’s declared religion – Love.

From the internet, I’ve taken this copy of, possibly, one of Rumi’s most best known poems.

I do not know the translator.
