Rumi’s Take on Eternal JOY –A Quickie!


I signed up for A Year of Rumi. This one reflects my theme of JOY and it mentions flowers and grasses, which I have added. Enjoy!

Speculation and grief find no life or support
Here where wine dances and soul-music plays.
O my heart-friends, taste deep of Eternal Joy!
Like flowers and grasses, bow your lips to the stream.


– Jalal-ud-Din Rumi
(Translated by Andrew Harvey from A Year of Rumi)
