come let’s be a new spring ~ Rumi

come
let’s fall
in love
again
let’s turn
all the dirt
in this world
to shiny gold

come
let’s be
a new spring
a love reborn

find our aroma
from the essence
of all who
emit heavenly fragrance

like a fresh tree
bloom and spread
all the blessings
right from inside

    Perfect. I have been painting cherry blossom trees and dogwood trees all week in art class w my students..we have been painting the cherry blossoms with soft light pink and white paint using qtips, and for dogwood flower trees we use popcorn to create a really neat texture effect. Ive been enjoying the celebration of the newness of spring through these paintings. Maybe i will read them this rumi poem next week! Thanks 🙂
