Rumi Poems

Forget safety.
Live where you fear to live.
Destroy your reputation.
Be notorious.”

and right doing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down in that grass
the world is too full to talk about.”

rumi poems quotes

Through Love all that is bitter will be sweet,
Through Love all that is copper will be gold,
Through Love all dregs will become wine,
Through Love all pain will turn to medicine.
– Rumi

The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere.
They’re in each other all along.”
― Rumi

I want to see you.
Know your voice.
Recognize you when you
first come ’round the corner.

Sense your scent when I come
into a room you’ve just left.
Know the lift of your heel,
the glide of your foot.

Become familiar with the way
you purse your lips
then let them part,
just the slightest bit,
when I lean in to your space
and kiss you.

I want to know the joy
of how you whisper
― Rumi

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.
― Rumi
