بر بوی تو هر کجا گلی دیدستم
بونیدستم٫ سر شک بار یدستم
در هر چمنی که دیده ام سروی را
بر یاد قد تو پاش بوسیدستم

Remembering your scent, wherever I saw a flower,
I smelled it and tears began to pour.
Wherever I saw a cypress in the meadow,
I kissed its feet in memory of you.

— #1176, from Rumi’s Kolliyaat-e Shams-e Tabrizi (via gardenofrumi)

“The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.”

“We are the night ocean filled
with glints of light. We are the space
between the fish and the moon,
while we sit here together.”
