Description The Rumi poem in this painting is about the mythical bird Simorgh:The Simorgh* of my heart is longing to fly again Until now, this bird was content with ordinary desires Now, the flame of her passion has burnt those seeds and she is soaring to the seven skies The caldron that stirred all my childish notions has finished simmering All you see inside is eternal love I am ready now Copyright 2015 Carmen Costello and Ari Honarvar
