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.”

~Rumi

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..
