PHOTO OF THE DAY: Words of Paradise (Project 52, Week #4).

Words of Paradise. Taken January 7, 2012 in Philadelphia PA.

I was a speck of dust measured in molecules

Now I am a rising mountain peak, snow-capped;

I was forgotten like coffee grains in an empty pot

Now I am surging light leading a multitude

You erased my famine, unpicked my anger

Your energy charges my voice, it radiates my heart;

Now I am alive with the ore of words pouring

From my lips like molten lava glittering with joy.

From “Words of Paradise,” the Selected Poems of Rumi.
