Rumi: Egyptian bread

“My poetry is as Egyptian bread left overnight it becomes hard and stale, eat it while it is fresh. My poetry is as fish on dry land quivering for a moment yet before long it becomes cold and lifeless. If you eat it, imagining it is fresh what you eat my friend is only your imagination. My poetry lives only in the warmth of awareness in the cold of this world it dies.”

—Rumi.
