“Invisible Camel Bells, Slight Footfalls in Sand.” J. Rumi

Pretty damn cool. I’m not sure I get it but I love the fact that it’s here.

  • I thought it was interesting so I googled it. Apparently J. Rumi was a 13th century mystic and it seems this is only part of his poem.

  • Rumi is was a 13th century poet and Islamic theologian – we handed out poems including his at our wedding as favors – here’s one of my favorites:

    A moment of happiness,
    you and I sitting on the verandah,
    apparently two, but one in soul, you and I.
    We feel the flowing water of life here,
    you and I, with the garden’s beauty
    and the birds singing.
    The stars will be watching us,
    and we will show them
    what it is to be a thin crescent moon.
    You and I unselfed, will be together,
    indifferent to idle speculation, you and I.
    The parrots of heaven will be cracking sugar
    as we laugh together, you and I.
    In one form upon this earth,
    and in another form in a timeless sweet land.

  • OH and Wiki says he founded the Mevlevi, the whirling dervishes
