What the Friend Wants Done

One who does what the Friend wants done
will never need a Friend.

There is a bankruptcy that is pure gain.
The moon stays bright
when it does not avoid the night.

A rose's rarest essence
lives in the thorn.

I just learnt about Rumi Poetry yesterday for a class I am taking. I have to read it aloud tomorrow and every time I read it aloud in practice and each time I recite it, I get a different feel, a new inspiration. Wow.

Skollexie, that's great. I am thrilled you've discovered Rumi through your class. You have the rest of your life to explore.
