Rumi “Enchantment” – Inspirational Quotations


Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings once wrote,  “I do not understand how anyone can live without one small place of enchantment to turn to.” How true! I have been in my  flower-garden today with the Lumix camera. Ahhh! I was not disappointed. The late Spring flowers are at their best. Here are several photos, I’ll share. Might add a few words of enchantment myself. ~ What feeds the soul more than a flower?  What smells more sweet, than the Good Earth?  What poems touch are hearts, leaving us wanting more.   I’d say Rumi. Here’s a few of my favourites.


I smile like a Flower
Not only with my Lips
with my whole Being.

~ Beloved Rumi

The Oldest Thirst There Is

Give us gladness that connects
with the Friend, a taste of the quick.

You that make a cypress strong
and jasmine jasmine.

Give us the inner listening
that is a way in itself
and the oldest thirst there is.

Do not measure it out with a cup.
I am a fish. You are the moon.

You cannot touch me, but your light
fills the ocean where I live.
