A new book of verses of Rumi by an award-winning translator and poet. This selection captures Rumi in a rare mood and these are some of Rumi's most passionate and heartfelt expressions, each poem resonating with the intensity and fire rarely seen in English language before. Shiva says, "Rumi--I am constantly reminded--is a miracle. Everything about him is absolute magic. Poetry in perfect rhyme and meter poured out of him as he whirled for hours on end, or as he fell into various states of ecstasy and rapture. There is movement in every verse of Rumi. There is music, rhythm and breath in most of his poems in Persian. In my work as a translator I try to bring out some of these nuances. I try to pay a special attention to Rumi as a Persian mystic, and to the origin and the method of the creation of these timeless, sublime and always magical words."
"...These verses are not just meant for the libraries or the classrooms of academia. They are meant to be recited by human lovers and Lovers of God. The passion of Rumi expressed in this book by Shahram Shiva will restore the exultation of spirit in your Being. This passion is holy and it will heal you..."--Deepak Chopra, author of How to Know God: The Soul's Journey into the Mystery of Mysteries and several NY Times Bestsellers
