Lady in Blue


The above was taken outside Rumi’s mausoleum in Konya, Turkey. I love the dress, it’s color, shoes fit for an old lady, the stick etc. The face is also beautiful. I think she is a regular visitor to the mausoleum. Right now she is resting and getting ready to put on her glasses. May be she also likes to watch other people around as I do or may be she is getting ready to walk to her home. It felt homely by just looking at her.

Hope you enjoy.

    اول بگیر آن جام مه بر کفه آن پیر نه
    چون مست گردد پیر ده رو سوی مستان ساقیا
    I remind a great poem by Rumi, meaning in english:
    Get the red wine and pour for the eldest of village, when he/she get drunk go for other people…

    Great. I can read Persian, know the meanings of few words but cannot translate a complete sentence. Thanks.
