Illustration Friday- Poem

Digital Collage by Itkupilli, Illustration Friday Poem

This is love: to fly toward a secret sky,

to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment.

First, to let go of live.

In the end, to take a step without feet;

to regard this world as invisible,

and to disregard what appears to be the self.

Heart, I said, what a gift it has been

to enter this circle of lovers,

to see beyond seeing itself,

to reach and feel within the breast.

Mawlānā Jalāl-ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhi (Rūmī)

مولانا جلال الدین محمد رومی, Rumi: Say I Am You (Sufi poem)

I really like this piece! Its surprising to look at and realize that I like it (usually I would disagree with the photo-collage choices).

This is a well thought out illustration! Great work on it!

The poem is so You. The image is too, even though I'm not used to this new style, yet. :)

Thanks Mick

Let's say that i m finally free of all commercialism with my art...so I can freely express myself, dont have to think anything else...I think this is more my "old" style...I can explore things I am interested...:)
