من ز بسیاری گفتارم خموش

This verse from the timeless Rumi right about sums up the reasons for the hiatus in blogging here and elsewhere:

من ز بسیاری گفتارم خموش

There is so much to tell that the best one can do is to shut the hell up.

*
Or maybe it is good old lassitude – that ancient and perennial affliction of mine and many other an intellect of blinding brilliance.

At any rate, here are the other, related verses from Mevlana. I won’t exaggerate: I become ecstatic reading this stanza.

من ز بسیاری گفتارم خموش
من ز شیرینی نشستم رو ترش

من‌ چو لا گویم‌ مراد الاّ بود
من چو لب گویم لب دریا بود
