My Favorite Rumi Poems

If the sky is not in love,
then it will not be so clear.
If the sun is not in love,
then it will not be giving any light.
If the river is not in love, then it will be
in silence, it will not be moving.
If the mountains, the earth are not in love,
then there will be nothing growing.

I am bewildered by the magnificence of your beauty,
and wish to see you with a hundred eyes.
I am in the house of mercy,
and my heart is a place of prayer.

You were born with potential;
You were born with goodness and trust;
You were born with ideals and dreams;
You were born with greatness;
You were born with wings;
You are not meant for crawling, so don't
You have wings;
Learn to use them and fly!
