THIS IS A PIECE AND TRANSLATIONS OF SOME ROBAIS,I PUBLISHED IN NEVESHTA INTERATIONAL,N0 5,NOV.-DEC. 2007:

*WALK RUMI WALK*

IN THE YEAR 2007 WE ARE CELEBRATING 800TH ANNIVERSARY OF RUMI,THE IRANIAN PROLIFIC AND BEST SELLING POET WHO HAPPENED TO BE AN IMMIGRANT AND WANDERER OF THE WORLD,AS WELL.HERE YOU MAY FIND A PART OF OUR CONTRIBUTION TO SAL E RUMI,1386
1
WALK ALBEIT THE ROAD IS ENDLESS
YOU ARE WORTHLESS IF YOU LOOK ONLY THROUGH DISTANCE
GET TO THE ROAD THROUGH YOUR LIVING HEART
NOT JUST LIVING BODY THAT COULD BE NON HUMAN'S
2
WALK TO LIVING WELL
CIRCLE LIKE A WHEEL AS THE MOON CIRCLES
THERE IS YOR SOUL CIRCLING,FRIEND
AND WHAT CIRCLES COMES FROM CIRCLES
3
I WALKED THROUGH YOUR DESERT OF LOVE
TO FIND UNION WITH YOU
BUT IN EVERY WALK
A FALLEN CORP AND A SKULL
4
TONIGHT THAT I AM COMPETING WITH MOON AND JUPITER
I AM WALKING WITH MY SWEETHEARTS
DRUNKEN WITH GORGEOUS WINE
IT IS ALL I WANTED TONIGHT
*

On the day I die don't weep
Death has nothing to do with going away
The sun sets and the moon sets
But they are not gone
-RUMI
