very wonderful to see this image!
I very much admire the work of RUMI, his poetry and philosophy. I am glad to see that today, people are rediscovering one of the world’s greatest poets and philosopher.
I hope to pay some homage to him by doing some paintings in the future from his writings. He shall never be forgotten.
Thanks for your comment Solomon – your words are right! Nice to hear that you like his poetry and philosophy. It is wonderful and timeless!
I listen to some of his work in audio, read by Deepak Chopra.
Very few writers can match anything by Rumi…and that is true for most of the Persian writers as well. Persian writers it seem, mastered the art of writing very early in civilization, and its startling the depth of emotions captured in their verses.
You´re right about early persian writers. Rumis work was written in Persian, because the persian language was used for poetry and also official documents during late middle age under the Rum Seljuks in this region.
Arabic are magnificent letters… to my eyes..Spendid atmosphere here. fine photo! Jens.
