Mermaid's comment to my last post reminded me of Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi's Poetry and so I visited today this site on Rumi, again after quite a while. While going through it, I came across the following poem and it reminded of English, August's post, The Answer.
in an ocean of spirit,
yet our lips are always parched.
That thirst is the flawless scheme.
A lack that leads us the way sun
nudges shadows along.
- Duane Tucker from Reflections on Rumi
Only sweet-voiced birds are imprisoned.
Owls are not kept in cages.
