2009 Nautilus Silver Winner Pure Water - Poetry of Rumi with Coleman Barks and Eugene Friesen

Posted November 04 2012

PureWater-Image-Better Listen BetterListen is proud to be the recipient of a 2009 Nautilus Silver Award for our recording of Pure Water - Poetry of Rumi with Coleman Barks and Eugene Friesen

Following are transcribed selections of Rumi poetry included on our audio program our Pure Water.

Inside water, a water wheel turns.

The star circulates with the moon. 

We live in the night ocean wondering, 

What are these lights?  


*********************************

 

This moment, this love comes to rest in me, 

many beings in one being.

In one wheat grain a thousand sheath stacks. 

Inside the needles eye a turning night of stars.


*********************************

 

I am so small I can barely be seen.  

How can this great love be inside me?  

Look at your eyes, they are small, 

but they see enormous things.


*********************************

 

Keep walking though there is no place to get to.  

Don’t try to see through the distance, that’s not for human beings.  

Move within but don’t move the way fear makes you move.  Move within.  


*********************************

 

Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing, 

there is a field. I’ll meet you there. 

When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.

Ideas, language, even the phrase each other doesn’t make any sense.
