Naomi Shihab Nye Reads Rumi's Father#1

In 2004, an arts organization out of Austin, named Texas Nafas (according to their site, Nafas means "breath" and is a metaphor for life), hosted a reading by Naomi Shihab Nye and Robert Bly of Persian poet Rumi. In the clip, Nye (who is judging our 2008 Poetry Prize) reads while Bly plays hype man.

There are a couple other brief clips in this series, but you can find the entire video on the Texas Nafas website. Check it out.
