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
    come to me
    as the song of bird
    as the of butterfly
    as the song of rosy fragrance
    not alone I'm
    you also with me here
    yeah let me sing within your singing voice……..///
    always great RUMI,
    always love HIM
    cause He is my inner journey maker

    Distracted by life and by all that's around me,
    give life some meaning, so I won't have to repeat it.

    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.......
