Rumi the first whirling saint of poetry spinning like a galaxy weaving constellations of words like blazing stars, numinous moons planets with gardens blossoming and oceans floating in space. Rumi the first whirling saint of poetry traversing the geography of divine desire with longing stronger than the undertow of history. This Presence is mysterious, like the silhouette of music, the circumference of a dream. When Rumi met Shams the clouds couldnâ€™t keep quiet they cried at the question that knocked Rumi down they floated more slowly, hoping to hear whispers from their mystical conversations. Rumi sending words like flaming arrows to penetrate hearts cold as that December night when Shams was called to the back door never to be seen again. Rumi bathed in sacred graces Rumi bathed in sacred graces like the wind that fills the flute with notes of longing.
