Essential Rumi

1) “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing

and rightdoing there is a field.

I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass

the world is too full to talk about.”

2) “The minute I heard my first love story,

I started looking for you, not knowing

how blind that was.

Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.

They’re in each other all along.”

3) “I want to see you.

Know your voice.

Recognize you when you

first come ’round the corner.

Sense your scent when I come

into a room you’ve just left.

Know the lift of your heel,

the glide of your foot.

Become familiar with the way

you purse your lips

then let them part,

just the slightest bit,

when I lean in to your space

and kiss you.

I want to know the joy

of how you whisper

‘more.’”

4) “Lovers find secret places

inside this violent world

where they make transactions

with beauty.”

5) “This is how I would die

into the love I have for you:

As pieces of cloud

dissolve in sunlight.”

6) “Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.”
