A beautiful piece of Maulana Jallaluddin Rumi’s writings, i post with many thanks to Subhan Zain, a wonderfully talented blogger:

Subhan Zein



I Am A Sculptor



I am a sculptor, a molder of form.

In every moment I shape an idol.

But then, in front of you, I melt them down


I can rouse a hundred forms

and fill them with spirit,

but when I look into your face,

I want to throw them in the fire.


My souls spills into yours and is blended.

Because my soul has absorbed your fragrance,

I cherish it.


Every drop of blood I spill

informs the earth,

I merge with my Beloved

when I participate in love.


In this house of mud and water,

my heart has fallen to ruins.


Enter this house, my Love, or let me leave.



The Divani Shamsi Tabriz, Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi
