“Meeting Rumi”

“Rumi, for it was indeed him, wore a simple brown woolen cloth robe, the ‘suf’ from which ‘Sufi’ is derived, and a white turban. But the man’s face was the pure distillation of love. His small mouth was as delicately sculpted as a masterpiece miniature; his nose, long and narrow. Rumi’s eyes, shaded by thick brows and half again as large as a normal man’s, dominated his visage. They were the color of mahogany and seemed large enough to take in the very universe. Yet it was their softness that struck the observer most powerfully. These eyes bathed their viewer with interest, care, and love. They were remarkable eyes!”
