Recently I received an idea from a fellow blogger about selecting a particular poem of Rumi and then either following its style and tone, or finding a creative way to respond to it. So, I am giving it a try here. Do leave your comments please.
Mystical Poems of Rumi The heart is like a grain of corn, we are like a mill; how does the mill know why this turning? The body is like a stone, and the water its thoughts; stone says, “The water knows what is toward.” The water says, “Ask the miller, for it was he who flung this water down.” The miller says to you, “Bread-eater, if this does not turn, how shall the crumb-broth be?” Much business is in the making; silence, ask God, that He may tell you.
And my response to the above Poem as below.
I ask God in silence, why things are the way they are. He says “Safeguard your heart; for everything you do flows from it” Then I question, “But what about the water; do they not rise from my heart?” God tells me “I do NOT control your thoughts but I know your thoughts” The thoughts of my heart washes the stone, my body The Bread eater depends on the Miller; He sees all and knows all. The Mills are mere vessels, to bring His purpose about.
