Rumi Quotes in “The Biodome Chronicles”

Jalaluddin “Rumi”– Medieval Persian Poet, Theologian, and Philosopher — is a HUGE influence in the themes and ideas presented in The Biodome Chronicles series. I love his poetic expressions of love and life experiences with nature as his backdrop and go-to metaphor. And he has a fondness for trees and leaves! *le sigh*

In this new blog series, I’ll share, a couple times a month, some of my favorite Rumi Quotes, especially those featured as epigraphs in LEGACY and the upcoming book in The Biodome Chronicles trilogy, ELEMENTS.

Without further adieu:

 

“Inside of us, there’s a continual autumn.

Our leaves fall and are blown out over the water.”

what you sow will bear fruit.

So if you have any sense, my friend
don’t plant anything but love,
you show your worth by what you seek.”

Heart shaped leaves of the Linden Tree, well known throughout medieval Europe as the  tree of love and truth.
