Simplicity

Photographs. Quotes. Poetry. Spirituality.

I desire you more than food or drink.
My body, my senses, my mind,
Hunger for your taste.
I can sense your presence in my heart.
Although you belong to all the world,
I wait in Silent Passion,
For one gesture,
For one single glance from You..

Rumi (via random-expressions)

To fall in love with God is the greatest of all romances; to seek Him, the greatest adventure; to find Him, the greatest human achievement.

—St. Augustine (via ohseeker)

middleeasternpoetry:

How will I drag my feet to her now? In which land will I see her, and on which street of what city should I ask about her? If I find her house (let’s suppose I do) - how will I ring the bell? How should I answer? How will I stare at her face? … How will I take the pain of all these years? Once 20 years ago, in an air-conditioned train, I kissed her all night through. - Saadi Y.

middleeasternpoetry:

She married me, in spite of the tribe; and she travelled with me, in spite of the tribe. She gave me Zeynab and Omar, in spite of the tribe. [And] when I used to ask her, ‘Why she would take me?’ - like a child, against her chest… “Because you are my tribe.” - Nizar Kabbani

Welcome to Israel, where chanting “Death to Arabs” is democracy, running over children is equality, and firing on funerals is peace.
