Poems and Phantasms

“Red mushroom under a tree in the forest root” Chenspec, 2008. (CC A-S A 3.0)

“Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.” ~Rumi

  2. Such a great quote. Everything happens for a reason and the sorry does prepare you for something more positive. Out with the old and in with the new. Thanks for sharing.
