The World of Rumi

I was dead, then alive.

Weeping, then laughing.

The power of love
came into me,
and I became
fierce like a lion,
then tender like
the evening star.

{Jelaluddin Rumi, one of my favorite poets, was born in 1207 in what is present day Afghanistan. It is the 800th anniversary of his birth. Look for more of his ecstatic words here throughout the year.}
