Rumi

Said to be ‘America’s most popular poet’ in 2007, the poetry of Rumi may not be familiar to many of us.  A 13th Century Persian poet, theologian and Sufi mystic, Rumi’s poetry has been translated into many languages and his worldwide influence has been considerable. 

Despite the recent flooding on roads into East Coker a good number of members came to enter the mystical world of the skittle alley at the Helyar Arms.  The evening was lead by Gaie Vickers with readings by Tilly Tremain and insights into beliefs of the Sufi sect by Simon Heathcote.
