Rumi Poetry Explained

Rumi poems are usually about love, spirituality, and life lessons. They are also based on the principles of “unity of being” which means that all living beings share the same essence.

When we think of Rumi, images of wisdom, peace, and understanding flood our mind. But this is not all he wrote. In addition to being a famous Sufi poet, Rumi was also an accomplished playwright and musician.

Even though he was a famous Sufi poet, most people know little about his other works or what type of literature he wrote.

As a result, many discover Rumi only through his poetry or through comparing it with other poets’ writings. Here are few of the best of Rumi poetry:

The meaning of life is revealed in the night, a deep and mysterious light that makes you want to be awake all night long. It’s like the sun rising in the morning, illuminating our world with new energy and clarity.

Final Words

We don’t know what we are made of exactly, but Rumi knows there is something more than just his words. There’s a darkness there along with the light that isn’t always being properly reflected.

When there is no sunlight, this darkness becomes engulfed by a pitiless light. The best of either comes from the dark or into the light — this poem was an example of both!
