Whether you have picked up one of his collected works or not, the name Rumi is synonymous with spiritual poetry and familiar to all. His work is so widely quoted and shared on social media platforms that I’m sure most of us have come into contact with each of his most celebrated pieces at least once.

The piece I have chosen for my selection is The Guest House. I first heard it…




“All good books are the same and when you read a good book you realize it’s already passed on to you and then that book becomes yours whatever good or bad or enjoyable in it. There are evils, sadness, people, towns and seasons there, they all become yours.” (Ernest Hemingway)
