Description A pink rose lies on the pages of a book of poems by Rumi as heart-shaped light illuminates it. The highlighted poem is 'Some Kiss.'From Wikipedia Online Encyclopedia:Jall ad-Dn Muhammad Balkh (Persian: ), also known as Jall ad-Dn Muhammad Rm ( ), Mevlana or Mawln (, meaning Our Master), Mevlevi or Mawlaw (, meaning My Master), and more popularly in the English-speaking world simply as Rumi (30 September 1207 17 December 1273), was a 13th-century Persian poet, jurist, theologian, and Sufi mystic. Rumi's influence transcends national borders and ethnic divisions: Iranians, Turks, Cappadocian Greeks, Afghans, Tajiks, other Central Asian Muslims, and the Muslims of South Asia have greatly appreciated his spiritual legacy for the past seven centuries. His poems have been widely translated into many of the world's languages and transposed into various formats. He has been described as the 'most popular poet in America' and the 'best selling poet in the US.'
Don Schwartz, Portland, Oregon Member Since September 2012 Artist Statement Photography is for me a dance with nature. It is the immersion in a landscape; the sharing of a habitat with nature’s creatures. It is the sense of being lost in the moment, where the passing of time goes unnoticed. It is the serendipity of capturing a moment in time that becomes a timeless moment. The quiet places, the places of simple beauty, draw me in – from the delicate splendor of dew dancing on an iris petal to the magnificent breadth of a gray whale slicing through the water. With my camera, I am a blessed witness in a field of splendor.
