Birdsong

Poem by Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

Birdsong brings relief
to my longing
I'm just as ecstatic as they are,
but with nothing to say!
Please universal soul, practice
some song or something through me!

    O Love

    always love HIM
    cause He is my inner journey maker(Report)Reply

    I can see what your saying... Elizabeth`s storry is amazing... on sunday I got a brand new Honda from earning $9023 this last four weeks and even more than 10-k this past month. with-out any doubt it's the most financially rewarding I've ever had. I started this 8-months ago and pretty much straight away was bringing home over $71... per-hr. I use this great link.......
