The Thundering Silence of Rumi

“From all that was familiar,

I broke away

Now I am lost, without a place,

wandering.

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.”

~from Rumi: Hidden Music by Azima Melita Kolin and Maryam Mafi

Here is a video with beautiful music, and the Whirling Dervishes of Rumi’s Sufi lineage… Enjoy!
