Friday Fun- Etchings

Kate is the host of Friday Fun

so please post about your etchings and link back here

An etching of Turkish poetry in the form of a whirling dervish.

It is a gift from a good friend of mine which she brought from Turkey a couple of years back.

Rumi, the famous Persian poet settled in Kunya, a city in Turkey. Whirling dervishes are followers of his school of thought. They submerge themselves into the thought of God and whirl around in abandonment.

In Turkey, this is a very popular tourist collectible.

When I visited Turkey, I brought back this statue of whirling dervish.

A fun prompt from Kate this week.

      1. You’re welcome, my friend. Mmm. I hadn’t thought about that before, and I think that would be amazing. When I read Rumi, I let it sit, and I discover over time, that there is so much more there. Sometimes it’s days later. It would be powerful to read in Persian.
