Love Itself

Let your teacher be Love itself
These words of Rumi echo in my mind
As I ponder my life’s path
I have been a teacher
It seems to be my talent
But what shall I teach? And how?
Rumi has supplied the answer
It is not I who teaches.
Let it be love.

  1. Beautiful, Bob! Interesting that there is a connection to two lines from a W H Auden poem that I have been meditating on:
    If equal affection cannot be
    Let the more loving one be me

    • Thank you, Marty! My poem was inspired by a greeting card Marianne gave me. When I showed her the poem along with the image, she said “How nice is that!”
