Some Thoughts While Reading Rumi

Go walk into your garden & pick the tiny
Red fruit of the very old sun
It is just one plant & quite small
But go walk into your garden & pick the tiny
Red fruit of the sun
Go walk into your garden & feast on life
Because life is a feast
Go walk into your garden & pick the little
Red fruit of the very old sun
It is just one plant & very small
But go walk into your garden & pick the tiny
Red fruit & feast on life
Because life is a feast
Go walk into your garden
No matter how small
It is still a garden.

Your poem is beautilf and reflexive! I guess that neither God knows what he can does with his own liberty. He is eternal, but sometimes, due to the world's happenings, he is more confuse than us humans beings.
Very nicely phrased. I think that living means always pursuing the answers to the questions we keep on asking.
The problem of evil clearly stated. Perhaps there are multiple Gods; some of which are good and some evil. I think when people talk of Satan or the Devil they are really talking polytheism even if they recite the Nicene creed.
I agree - read my poem 'Compassion'. Makes you wonder - but I guess it's for God to know and for us to learn the lesson. Linda
Lovely to read and great subject. For those of us who are not blessed/cursed with unerring faith, this just says it all. Hugs Anna xxx
