A tracing of part of a Celtic mermaid tattoo, wrecked in percolator Decim8 and Repix.

Poems aren't ready yet. For some reason Rumi didn’t write about Ophelia :mobibabe:

Oh dear. And I have no charge till tomorrow. So unless one of RoseCat ’s Mobi-faeries happen to be about, please either pretend it’s not there or feel inadequate because you cannot penetrate the depths of meanings in this, Er, highly coded, Er, where’s rizole when you need him? This simple and yet subtly nuanced comment on the secret artisan traditions of otherwise apparently normal middle class women except at Beltane when at sunset, under cover of the ritual fires, they all disappear into some cave or other and reappear at dawn laden with hooked rugs, Stilton and balsamic vinegar.

Have you tried turning it off and then on again?

Nice quote - I’d never seen it before.
I’ve stumbled over a few Bradbury quotes overthe years and thought really? I don’t recognise the theme/content/rhetorical style. I think that says more about the quality of my reading than anything else....

On the other hand, much as I love Rumi, sometimes I wonder if he could possibly be responsible for all the internet/Pinterest/hipster tattoos attributed to him. Or maybe any time we read anything nice we assume it must be Rumi and attribute it thusly.

I trust only the Coleman Barks translations. I understand that the ancient scholars aree concerned by the Western ‘accent’ of his translations. From my pov, I can be certain I’m reading a translation of something Rumi actually wrote. And (bonus) being a Westerner largely ignorant of the Koran, Sufism and other important influences have not deprived me of ‘Rumi’.
