The Thundering Silence of Rumi
“From all that was familiar,
I broke away
Now I am lost, without a place,
With no music like a fool I dance
and clap my hands.
How am I to live without you?
You are everywhere but
I cannot see you.”
Here is a video with beautiful music, and the Whirling Dervishes of Rumi’s Sufi lineage… Enjoy!
