Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
We are halfway this month of beautiful quotes for our inspiration. In all the quotes we can find a little bit of "the power of words". And that "power" we use everyday in our personal lives, but also in our haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry forms. In our haiku we share our thoughts, our memories, our ideas and our love for nature.
Today I have a beautiful quote by Rumi for you. Rumi (1207-1273), was a 13th-century Persian poet, jurist, Islamic scholar, theologian, and Sufi mystic. Rumi's spiritual legacy is appreciated all over the globe for the past seven centuries. His poems have been widely translated into many of the world's languages and transposed into various formats. Rumi has been described as the "most popular poet" and the "best selling poet" in the United States.
[...] "Let the beauty of what you love be what you do." [...] Rumi
