mystic rose

∙ tenderheartmusings ∙

lured
by your ephemeral radiance
a gentle unfolding
of velvet sensations
softly plants
an enchanting kiss

draped in coral blush,
you emanate a breath of love
fixated, I wonder
if it is a beautiful awakening
or a yearning in full bloom

Why Rumi?

In profound spiritual poetry, Rumi (a 13th century poet who is still a top-seller in the U.S.) brilliantly blended together material and intangible worlds in expressions that resonate with many of us.
His poetry in particular speaks to our own brilliant center of creation and radiance, regardless of our individual religious affiliation or non-affiliation.
His poetry inspires us to view our world from another perspective. It gives us pause and allows us to access the depth of our inner world and divinity.
Heart-Centered-Strategy is a reflection of the balance between the spiritual and material; accessing the spiritual is a practice to remind us to stop and view all of our business actions from an inner, meditative vision. More about heart-centered-strategy

“Rumi’s place in the history of religions is as a bridge-between-faiths.  The story of his funeral in 1273 is well known. Representatives came from  every religion -Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus.  When questioned about this, they responded, “He deepens us wherever we are.”  Rumi lives in the heart, the core (he might call it friendship) of our impulse to praise, to worship, to explore the mystery of union.  Even his name is a bridge word.” Coleman Barks Rumi: Bridge to the Soul: Journeys into the Music and Silence of the Heart, HarperCollins, 2007.

Poet Post: Joan of Arc by Carol Denson

When I read Ruby’s Eye of the Beholder post, it reminded me of Joan of Arc who acted in accordance with her spiritual vision and led the French to many victories against the occupying English.  If she had only reacted to the material world, she would have known that a 16 year old girl could not influence the course of history.  Instead she acted upon the Divine Guidance of her spiritual vision and created a monumental change in the physical world ~ Carol Denson

Joan of Arc stands in the garden hearing voices call,

but stares away from them, the three angels –

a red-bearded, golden-armored knight,

a flower-wreathed and gauzy-veiled maiden

whose hands are clasped and head canted, gazing

at Joan, and an indistinguishable baby.

Our heroine has risen from a loom,

her stool overturned, her eyes wide

but seeing nothing as she listens into

the space behind her, its unspoken call.

I cry in the Metropolitan Museum

when I come upon this unsuspecting Joan

by Bastien-Lepage.  I’d seen it once

in Paris or Madrid and the circumstance

of finding it again is startling.

Those years ago, heartsick, and now in playful,

happy love, but neither matters, what matters

is the listening and the house behind –

her parents praying for another fate,

their prayers useless against the call.
