Early Morning Rumi

Tabblo: Early Morning Rumi

One of the highlights of the each of the Dodge Poetry Festivals that I have attended has been the early morning Rumi session jointly done by Coleman Barks, Robert Bly and backed by some musicians. In this case; David Dahling (cello) Steve Gorn (flutes) (behind Barks) and Glen Velez (percussion).

On a Sunday morning, starting at 8:00 AM. Rumi's ecstatic poetry backed by some wonderful accompaniment is indeed a religious experience.

The first session was mostly Rumi. The second session got into some stories of their trip to Iran in 2005 mixed in with more Rumi, Haffez, and some of their own poems. It closed with Robert singing Haffez, and Coleman singing Dickenson to a shapenote hymn.
