Happy Valentine’s Day!

I do not know what it is which opens and closes
yet every fiber of my being understands
the fragrance of your presence is sweeter than a thousand roses
nobody, not even the rain, has such tiny hands
– e.e. cummings

    So cute!
    Happy valentine!

  2. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)

    In case you have forgotten,
    Remember Valentine’s Day,
    Give cards, candy or flowers,
    And celebrate it every day!

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Salam and thank you, the Day is not marked in the ‘calendar of Muslims or Sufis’, but you honour this anglo-american saint
    to invite others , to join Sufism and Islam ?
    If this is your Intention, to BRIDGE same Meaning to transport
    some GOOD, why not ? Since Non-muslims might know and honor Saint Valentine and do not know Shayk Junayd, Rabia or Maulana Rumi or others ?

    What a lovely poem! I will have to read some (more) e.e.cummings now. :)

    To rustfree: I think that is the idea. I love Sanai. He is understandable to Non-muslims. The e.e.cummings poem reminds me a little of him.

    “Until you are complete,
    a bridge has been prepared;
    but once you have become complete,
    what are bridge and river to you?”

    Does the shape of the bridge matter, as long as it gets you across?

    Thank you, dear friends, for the kind comments :) Yes, rustfree, that is the idea indeed. And Unda, thank you for the lovely Sana’i poem :) It perfectly elucidates the Sufi path, or bridge, of Love :)

    Ya Haqq!
