Returning to Source, Body Flowing out of Spirit, Spirit Flowing from Body... In Memoriam with Hope

Listen to the story told by the
reed of being separated.

'Since I was cut from
the reed bed
I have made
this crying sound.
Anyone separated from someone he loves
understands what I say.

Anyone pulled from a source
longs to go back.

At any gathering I am there,
mingling in the laughter
and the grieving,
a friend to each.

But few will hear the secrets
hidden
within
the
notes;
No ears for that.

Body flowing out of spirit
spirit flowing from body.
'

Rumi
13th Century Mystic Poet
