On Companionship and Hope

Like seekers who had stumbled upon Paradise, we sat in the shade of this pomegranate tree for a long time.  There, among ancient ruins, it was calling us to an Eternal Sitting.

Mevlana Rumi writes, “…pomegranate-laughter is blessed, like the companionship of good people. Even if you’re a common rock, when you join them, you’ll become a precious stone”.

There in that moment, we had both.

By His Majesty, this is Meziana.

  1. There is such resilience among trees… This tree reminds me of olive or orange trees in occupied lands… very seldom nurtured but very deeply rooted. And through their resilience manage to allow the landscape a gentleness, softness and more humaneness for the eye of the beholder.

  2. Certainly. If trees could speak, such tales they would share!

  3. How wise are the words of Mevlana? I was a rock among jewels.

    On another note, trees are phenomenal creations aren’t they? They give and give; shade, fruit, air to breath.
