Rumi: Say I Am You (Sufi poem)


Rumi’s poems elegantly and consistently touch our inner being and inspire us
to go beyond our limitations towards the Divine.

The music: The credits do appear at the end of this video, but it is by the composer,
Eleni Karaindrou, and is the theme music called “Eternity and a Day” from the movie, Aggelopoulos.

A note on the music: This entire video was constructed in silence-only the poem and the images were put together without my knowing what music would be the right one. The music is so important to the interpretation of these poems. Rather than reading them, the music is my voice. When I ‘laid’ this beautiful piece of music over the video it fit perfectly. Few edits were made to accommodate the images to fit the music. They seem to be made for each other.
