Rumi

A Star Without a Name

When a baby is taken from the wet nurse,
it easily forgets her
and starts eating solid food.

Seeds feed awhile on ground,
then lift up into the sun.
So you should taste the filtered light
and work your way toward wisdom
with no personal covering.
That's how you came here,
like a star without a name.
Move across the night sky
with those anonymous lights.

Buongiorno Sas ! Io vorrei partecipare al tuo bellissimo blog, ma il mio povero inglese non me lo permette. Ogni tanto verrò ugualmente a visitarlo per guardare le tue foto così piene di armonia. Se vuoi puoi venire a visitare il mio blog che è la brutta copia del tuo blog!. I miei pensieri, però, sono simili ai tuoi pensieri.
Ciao Buona giornata
Massimo

Sas, these pictures are simply gorgeous. Perhaps they are spent flowers? They are still so beautiful, it's your photography talent I think!!! The lighting and the dark colors make them professional quality pics. You should publish my friend!!! Of course the quote is beautiful as always.
