OMG it is Wednesday Already - Poetry!

Sorry Poetry fans. I think my poetry of late has been of the visual kind. Pictures of flowers and clouds and sunsets and sunrises. No doubt soon it will all digest itself and produce a poem or two but for the moment I am all eyes! And camera lenses. So I am posting a favorite poet of mine: Rumi. And a poem new to me which appealed because of the risks I have been taking in mud holes and narrow four wheel roads.


Why cling to one life
till it is soiled and ragged?

The sun dies and dies
squandering a hundred lived
every instant

God has decreed life for you
and He will give
another and another and another


If you have a poem for the tour this week (I generally ad them through Thursday) leave me a comment here or on Facebook or in Profiles.


  1. Rumi, is a good one to always go back to and re-read, Jacqui! The columbine picture is beautiful too.
    Keep shooting those pictures!

  2. Wonderful Rumi! This is a glorious poem.
    I like the picture of the flowers too.

  3. Oh so true if we would stop and listen.

  4. Rumi is another of my favourite poets.

    This week has slipped away from me also. Thus my reading your Wednesday blog on Saturday..sheesh, where does the time go?


I appreciate all kind comments on my art and poetry.
