Poems to share

Do you know what you are?

Do you know what you are?
You are a manuscript of a divine letter.
You are a mirror reflecting a noble face.
This universe is not outside of you.
Look inside yourself;
everything that you want,
you are already that.

Rumi

National Poetry Day Ambassador Sally Crabtree says...
'This is one of my favourite poems and it has inspired much of my current work as the Poetry Postie. We are the message of ourselves!'

Rumi was a 13th-century Persian poet, jurist, Islamic scholar, theologian, and Sufi mystic. His poems have been widely translated into many of the world's languages and transposed into various formats.
