Stepanie's book, page 6


Another Rumi poem. As I said before, I'm not so crazy about his work, or rather, I'm not so crazy about the philosophy behind the poetry. This is a perfect example of why - I love the imagery, and I love the rhythm and the simplicity of the poem, but I'm not so crazy about the notion of having to lose yourself and relinquish your personality (and ego) in order to connect to some higher truth.
