Which book has the most enchanting cover on your shelf?
Although there are many becautiful covers on my bookshelf, I’d say this is the most enchanting. There’s something on this cover that just draws me in. I don’t know if it’s the color of the background, the color of the the font, the picture of the whirling dervish, or all three. Nevertheless, this book was mesmerizing. The story is about how Rumi, the great Persian poet, came to be the poet he is through the bond and knowledge he shared with his master, Shams of Tabriz. There was a certain level of mysticism and spiritulism attained throughout this book. In some parts, I was able to reach a state of tranquility 😌😌.
Initially, this was not the cover I had in mind when I went to go search for it. I heard of this book from a friend who lives in Bangladesh and she was raving about it so much, I thought I’d give it a try. Thankfully I found the book at Barnes and Noble and oh my word, the cover was just as beautiful. Thank you @shafakelif for such a beautiful book.
“A life without love is of no account. Don’t ask yourself what kind of love you should seek, spiritual or material, divine or mundane, eastern or western…divisions only lead to more divisions. Love has no labels, no definitions. It is what it is, pure and simple. Love is the water of life. And a lover is a soul of fire! The universe turns differently when fire loves water.”
