This is how I would die

into the love

I have for you:

as pieces of cloud

dissolve in sunlight


Rumi…the master poet….the describer of that deep love which arrives when we give up our self. My favorite poet.

  1. every word from his mouth is lovely

  2. Beautiful. 👏🙏🏻 My favorite poet too.

  3. Oh, Gretchen…absolute perfection.

  4. Beautiful words, with the, gentleness, the beauty you’d, painted, as, embellishments.

  5. Gorgeous painting Gretchen! I love this quote by Rumi, he’s one of my favorites too. Have a lovely weekend 💖

  6. Thank you Maria……do you have the illustrated Rumi, translated by Colman Barks?

  7. Thank you for introducing me to this Rumi poetry. My grandpa died this week and this is how I hope the passing was for him.

    • Of course….it was such an experience. Everything is about love. If you are drawn to the poetry of Rumi, I would suggest looking for “The Illuminated Rumi.” It is one of many Rumi translations by Coleman Barks. I particularly like this one because of the mystical illustrations. Love, peace Gretchen
