Listen to the Reed

Rachel has a wonderful post on how the Divine is heard through Divine creation. It reminded of this poem of Rumi (posted many moons ago in a different context):

بشنو از نى چون حكايت ميكند

جدائيها شكايت ميكند

beshno az nay con hekaayat mekonad

az judaa’ihaa shekaayat mekonad

listen to the reed as it tells a tale

as it complains of separation

How beautiful is the image of humanity simply being instruments for the Divine sound?
