by Rumi

Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder.

Help someone's soul heal.

Walk out

of your house like a shepherd.


  1. Hi Annie, thanks for coming to my blog and leaving a comment-love the Rumi poem!

  2. How funny. I just wrote a poem and in the last lines I am carrying a staff, like a shepherd. Rumi is so great. So wise.

  3. I should post this on my kitchen door.

    Touched me deeply...

  4. How is it that this 13th Century Persian can get it so right...
