I would like to focus this Rumi-nator meeting on Poetry of the mystics. I have been a junkee for the poetry of Rumi, Hafiz, Kabir etc. for several years now and I need a Rumi fix. We have had enjoyable and valuable meetings at Morro Castle in the French Quarter which dealt with poetry in general and I plan to continue those meetings with no emphasis on any kind of poetry, but I would like the meetings at the City Park Center to look more at the mystics. However, please do not let that stop you from offering to the circle anything you like. I would be disappointed if noone broke the rule. We will open the doors at 2:00pm with soft drinks and wine. At 3:00 we will begin our meeting with some moments of silence/meditation/prayer. Then a round of checking in or introducing ourselves. After that we will read or recite the poems everyone brings and talk about them. We will finish at 5:00 but if there is interest we will move to the nearest coffee shop for more discussion. If you have a poem to offer to the circle please email it ahead of time or bring it a little early so I can make copies. I hope to see everyone there.
