Silent Sermon Sunday


Oh Maker of Mysteries,
Who makes every stranger a friend,
Who has given the rose to the thorn as a robe of honor,
Sift our dust again!
Make our nothing something.
~ Rumi


Namaste' Till Next Time,
Holly

I love that quote... 'who has given the rose to the thorn'... ah yes. Thank you for sharing this. And the photo, with the sun showing through, is beautiful.

Love to you xx

Holly my Queen, This is beautiful with a lovely photo.

And OF COURSE, Your back yard garden SHOULD have been #1 on my list of places to visit, Baltimore with you for crabs #2. I don't know what I was thinking!!! As they say, a mind is a terrible thing to waste :-)

Hope your weekend is good.
xoxo

Beautiful photograph. I wonder why it is that one can never tire of sunsets and sunrises. Probably because each is its own daily miracle..

I love the idea of making something out of nothing. I must hold that thought today. Thanks, dear Hollyness. Oh, and I so agree with your fire-breathing dragon peeve!

Lovely photo. And Rumi ... how much did that man write anyhow? I keep reading and reading different poems, and each one as beautiful as the last.

What a beautiful poem! Did Rumi ever write anything that wasn't pure genius? Short answer: no.

Excellent words to start the week by. Perhaps this week I will not make my something nothing...
