Tomorrow (Dec. 17) marks the anniversary of the death of the Sufi poet Rumi…
Here are eight of our favorite poems by Rumi …
The Silence of Love
Love is the astrolabe of God’s mysteries.
A lover may hanker after this love or that love,
But at the last he is drawn to the KING of Love.
However much we describe and explain Love,
When we fall in love we are ashamed of our words.
Explanation by the tongue makes most things clear,
But Love unexplained is better.
