Day 403 of the poem-a-day series. It's by Rumi, 13th century poet. Today is his death anniversary. Born on Sept 30, 1207 in Balkh, Afghanistan, he died on Dec 17, 1273 in Konya, Turkey. A BBC report in 2014 termed him the best-selling poet in the US. "Let's look at what it means to be called a Sufi. To be a Sufi, is the same as belonging to any cult or sect or small religious or spiritual group that has a structure and a system of hierarchy. There is the master at the top, then officers below him and then the disciples. The master, whether it's a small Christian cult in the Midwest of the US, or an ultra-orthodox Hasidic community in Jerusalem, or a small Sufi sect in Egypt, or a Guru in an ashram in a village in India, has complete and total control over the group. His or her word is considered a command and is obeyed by all the disciples blindly.
Unless the organization has grown very large to include multiple locations, no new student can join the group until deemed worthy by the master. Also, joining such groups means adhering to strict rituals and routine practices formulated by that cult.
Keep in mind that Sufism is a relative newcomer in the region that dates back many thousands of years and is rich with culture, spirituality, mysticism and the desire to explore the mysteries of humanity and the universe. Being a mystic in Mideast doesn't necessitate in being a Sufi. For examples many dervishes in Iran trace their heritage back to at least 5,000 years and would clearly distinguish themselves from Sufism, which is only a several hundred year old tradition.
Based on the above, Rumi certainly was not a Sufi. He didn't belong to any such sect neither did he pay homage to any particular master--short of Shams, who was not a Sufi and had no other followers. Lastly Rumi knew Shams for only a couple of years before Shams was killed in the hands of Rumi's youngest son."

surrender
surrender my friend

for pushing fighting
will only build walls 
that you must tear down

true strength 
is in the knowing
is in the doing 
of the heart

it is the faith
to fly fly

fly

my deal soul

be swept up
in the winds 
of yourself

fly .

When We Were Young Poem 350/365
Just being honest I wonder how many of us could have said this
I wonder how many of us just settle and just get comfortable
I'm not seaking comfort
I want the one forever

stems.
//full👇
each and every plant 
has become stretched 
reaching toward the window 
whatever light is left,
since you’ve been gone.
I don’t even rotate them anymore.
no use in shifting when 
the source of brilliance
//
is a constant cold shine,
always outside.
further up and out 
than it may seem.
like my heart and the way it
claws toward the sky now.
how it grows entirely too scraggly 
and thin.
//
the leaves haphazardly spread 
along the stem in waiting—
as if photosynthesis is the last thing
to worry about during this new year, 
when I’m already getting so far 
away from myself.
away from the center of it all.
and it’s not for lack of water,
//
for I pour and pour and pour;
only to watch the roots rot,
only to see the foundation crumble
in absence of your sun.

The grumpy Grinch! A cautionary tale. 
Using #writingprompts "grumpy Grinch"

"Flakes of lace"

The grumpy Grinch takes frost flowers 
And hands them to his mate. 
They soon become a puddle of
Cold water on her plate.

The grumpy Grinch takes holly
And stuffs his cushions with them.
He cannot figure out why
House guests won't come again. 
The grumpy Grinch, he opens 
His windows all up wide
When the weather is brumous
To let it all inside. 
The grumpy Grinch takes flakes of lace
And makes a wedding dress.
He understands not why no bride's
Convinced of its finesse

The grumpy Grinch knows not meanings
Of giving and of thanks.
He does not give or receive gifts 
Except when at the bank. 
Do not be like the grumpy Grinch 
For he is very mean. 
If you copy his selfishness 
You'll be lonely and green!

Affable benevolence 
And plenty of good cheer,
Cinnamon wishes,
Tangled kisses,
Mistletoe and reindeer. 
Shiny, sparkly tinsel
And home-made paper chains,
Peppermint and strawberry 
Chocolates and candy cane! 
Roasted turkey,
Fresh mince pies and
Christmas pudding too. 
Port and white wine
For those who dine.
Use leftovers in stew. 
But there is nothing quite like 
Those special Christmas sweets. 
Peppermint and strawberry 
Chocolates are good to eat!

Gather round a closed window
Enjoy paraselene
A lovely sight is that moonlight 
Yet we humans must eat.
At this time of year we have 
Foods that Christmas contains, 
Peppermint and strawberry 
Chocolates and candy cane!

Oh why do we eat Brussels sprouts 
On every Christmas day? 
Gingerbread and stollen
Make up for that anyway. 
Cranberry can either be
Quite tart or very sweet, but
Peppermint and strawberry 
Chocolates are good to eat!

Some drink spicy eggnog
Some drink chilled champagne,
Yet there are things we all enjoy.
Each and every girl and boy 
Can join in and take their seats, 
And pass round Christmas treats,
Remember they're so good to eat,
Peppermint and strawberry 
Chocolates and candy cane!

Resting in his flight
On a twig too slight
Feels it bend beneath him,
Yet sings
Knowing he has wings.
