Come to the orchard in spring.
There is light and wine,
and sweethearts in the pomegranate flowers.
If you do not come, these do not matter.
If you do come, these do not matter.

Rumi- A Persian poet, and the author of text that coincides with Jesus and Buddha’s teaching eerily well, was also calling for people to come to peace through love. He was also an artist, and together with Shams, (his  partner), was inspired to conceive of great art and poetry.
