2 thoughts on “Beautiful red roses

  1. These roses remind me of the roses around my house when I lived in Spain. They would bloom twice a year, from Spring to mid-July and then until the beginning of September the land was parched, but in the autumn they would begin flowering again and it was like a second spring. They also remind me of the beautiful Sufi stories of the nightingale falling in love with the rose as a spiritual metaphor of the soul longing for God.

    Brother, I will post some poetry from Yunus Emre tomorrow, inshallah, which I think you will like because it uses the natural world as a metaphor.
