Rumi at Random

Peace, one and all...

In my last post for the night (hurrah you all shout), I want to offer a couple of random selections from Rumi. Well, not wanting to hang about - Yalla!
'I'm drunk and you're insane, who's going to lead us home?'

'Hungry, you're a dog, angry and bad-natured.
Having eaten your fill, you become a carcass;
you lie down like a wall, senseless.
At one time a dog, at another time a carcass,
how will you run with lions, or follow the saints?'
(Mathnawi I.2873-2875)

True indeed!

Ma'as salama,

Abdur Rahman
