Poems that touch your heart- 02

Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī or Rumi, as he is popularly known is a 13th century Persian poet and scholar.

His poems have always influenced me and it evokes a sense of emotional awareness if you read carefully.

Below are few of his lines. ( translated)-

My heart is so small, it’s almost invisible.

How can you place such big sorrows in it?

“Look”, He answered,

“your eyes are even smaller,

yet they behold the world.”



About Maya

Bored of the tedium and tired of the rut, I look for shelter in my imaginary hut; Behind these veils of propriety and decorum, I desperately seek a liberating forum; In my words and humor you'll find fire But beware and warned, It's all just Maya! Come, see my world through my window..
