Desire Rumi By My Hearts DesireToday I am prompted to recite the first poem that comes to mind. For some reason I immediately think back to the Poem “Desire” by Rumi. A few years back I wrote this essay on the poem during a very difficult time in my life. Why it comes back to me now, I’m not exactly sure.  Perhaps it’s just my everlasting and strange obsession with love.
