for summer solstice, the radiant heat and passion of rumi (from the archives)

After dancing through Rumi videos for over an hour, I found myself right back at this one, which first appeared in the blog in September 2008 (titled “this Rumi poem and video ought to be rated R for Ravishing”). I continue to swoon every time I view it.

This soulful and sensual video (5:30) offers up ancient Persian poet Rumi’s “Like This,” set to Anoushka Shankar’s “Prayer in Passing” and accompanied by various paintings by Pre-Raphaelite artists, renowned for their obsession with classical mythology, muses, and nymphs. The video is by mommy2kai, and if you can’t view it here, link over to youtube here.

    • Thanks, Ian. There is nothing like a bit of Rumi in the afternoon. Or the morning. Or the evening. Or any time at all. Always seems to give me what I need, just when I need it.
