renewed courage

Like friends united, it's a season blessed:

Heart's light is sparked to life by body's death.

At the sound of lightning laughing, clouds cry,

And the garden laughs as tears fall from the sky.

#1636: From Rumi's Kolliyaat-e Shams-e Tabrizi

Search words: courage, spy, unite

What a wonderful image of drought relief! I was seeking renewed courage in Rumi and I sure found it. This is such a song of praise of the fecundity that can result from shock, even the shock of death of a loved one.

I won't write much in here today. I need to move on to other chores.
