When I Die by Rumi - Happy Easter ✝️

 “Easter is the demonstration of God that life is essentially spiritual and timeless.” – Charles M. Crowe 🌸🧚🏽‍♀️🌺

My Mint came roaring back! πŸ’šπŸ₯°

My first Iris this year. πŸ’œ

WHEN I DIE by Rumi

When I die
when my coffin
is being taken out
you must never think
i am missing this world

don’t shed any tears
don’t lament or
feel sorry
i’m not falling
into a monster’s abyss

when you see
my corpse is being carried
don’t cry for my leaving
i’m not leaving
i’m arriving at eternal Love

when you leave me
in the grave
don’t say goodbye
remember a grave is
only a curtain
for the paradise behind

you’ll only see me
descending into a grave
now watch me rise
how can there be an end
when the sun sets or
the moon goes down

it looks like the end
it seems like a sunset
but in reality it is a dawn
when the grave locks you up
that is when your soul is freed

have you ever seen
a seed fallen to earth
not rise with a new life
why should you doubt the rise
of a seed named human

have you ever seen
a bucket lowered into a well
coming back empty
why lament for a soul
when it can come back
like Joseph from the well

when for the last time
you close your mouth
your words and soul
will belong to the world of
no place no time

My new Water Oak tree in front has tripled in size. πŸ™πŸΌ

Hi Marion.

Happy Easter. It was so nice to see your comment on my post today. I miss the old days of blogging. It seems, in spite of lockdowns and solitude, I have been busier than ever. I wonder why that is.

I must come back to visit you more often. I did scroll down a little and I see we are in agreement on this political mess we are in. I pray daily that we can get through this and hopefully put things back together again in the future. It is frightening what our President is doing to our country. President Trump did not have the best way of verbalizing his thoughts and he could be brash and loud, BUT he was protecting us and making things so much better all around. I no longer feel safe. Those countries that are out to get us feared Trump (they knew he meant business), but I fear those same countries are laughing at Biden and working even harder on how to infiltrate us.

Enough. I wish you a beautiful Easter Day. Take care and enjoy the beauty of Spring, and life!

Thank you, Kelly! I hope your Easter was blessed! xo

Thanks, Audrey! I miss the old blogging community, too. I made some lifelong friends. I’m afraid for our country, too. It’s being “run” by a cabal of ignorant, greedy, selfish idiots... May God protect us all! Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Blessings to you and yours. xo 🌹
