Soothing as soothing can be … the power of the written word.
Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī know more popularly in the English-speaking world simply as Rumi (30 September 1207 – 17 December 1273), was a 13th-century Persian poet, jurist, theologian, and Sufi mystic.
Rumi’s importance is considered to transcend national and ethnic borders. His poems have been widely translated into many of the world’s languages and transposed into various formats.
He has been described as the “most popular poet in America” and the “best selling poet in the US”.
