    A lovely book with some beautiful poetry. Some favorite lines.... "Your own transformation, like the play of wind with a flag, moves in you now, that near, that simple." "The world is an open green in the middle of a garden." "If you have times you don't ache with love, you shouldn't be here with us." "Each moment you call me to you and ask how I am, even though you know. The love I answer you with stirs like wind through cypress." "From cane reed, sugar. From a worm's cocoon, silk. Be patient if you can, and A lovely book with some beautiful poetry. Some favorite lines.... "Your own transformation, like the play of wind with a flag, moves in you now, that near, that simple."

Be patient if you can, and from sour grapes will come something sweet." "Someone who doesn't make flowers makes thorns. If you're not building rooms where wisdom can be openly spoken, you're building a prison." "Do you hear what the violin says about longing? The same as the stick,'I was once a green branch in the wind."

    Beautiful translation that captures both the allegorical mysticism and spiritual wisdom of Rumi and Shams' teachings. With gentle imploration we are instructed to stop searching among the branches for what appears only in the roots, to submerge ourselves in a profound love deep beneath the waves of the sea, eternally forming and unfolding.

    Rumi is translated by the ever love-drunk Barks, which is a wonderful pairing. These poems pull you in to your own soul, invite you to a laugh around the table with friends, and leave you wondering who you just met. Beautiful, alive, flowing, you move through Rumi's river of spirit in a trance. You come into this trance again and again each time you pick up the book. It is never finished.

    This is by far one of my favourite books EVER. A friend gave it to me 6 years ago, and I always have it somewhere close, and if I go on a trip I always bring it. Every page has something beautiful on it. Amazing book.

    Rumi poetry always provides interesting wisdom and insights useful to leaders and OD practitioners alike. I always enjoy translations from Coleman Barks.

    Gift from Kristen. Full of gems even if not a sufi oneself. Each opening, opens more, as in ''A shadow can't ignore the sun that all day creates and moves it''. Gift from Kristen.

    Mystic thinking. A must reread. "A Green-Winged Longing" struck me most- this time. Mystic thinking. A must reread. "A Green-Winged Longing" struck me most- this time.
