The Full Moon last night with a poem by Rumi


DEFEATED BY LOVE

The sky was lit
by the splendor of the moon
So powerful
I fell to the ground

Your love
has made me sure

I am ready to forsake
this worldly life
and surrender to the magnificence
of your Being

- Rumi

The night before the clouds had covered the sky dashing any chance of getting to see the moon at its closest to earth. Last night though the clouds had cleared away so I had a great view. Awesome.

  2. Hi Liz,

    I haven't read Rumi in ages, so I am so glad you posted that beautiful poem, and the picture of the full moon. It was so gorgeous last night here as well. I took some pictures, too, but haven't downloaded them yet. That moon was so bright it lit up the entire field in the back, and I could see some deer grazing out there. Tonight, it's cloudy, so I am very happy I saw it last night!

    Hope you're having a lovely Sunday.

    Love and hugs,

    Renie

  3. Hi Renie,

    Lovely to hear from you!!!! I loved that poem and it fitted so nicely with the photo I had taken last night. I'm a secret poetry lover (but don't tell my kids that lol!) That would have been magic seeing the deer in the moonlight. Hope you put your photos up soon. Taday is cloudy but it's nice and quiet. No bulls getting out today thank goodness.

    Lots of love and hugs to you too Renie
    Love Liz
