Don’t Go Back To Sleep

 

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.

Don’t go back to sleep.

You must ask for what you really want.

Don’t go back to sleep.

People are going back and forth across

the door sill where two

worlds touch.

The door is round and open.

Don’t go back to sleep.

Do you listen to that which the breeze tries to tell you?

What do you want and are you asking for it?

Is your heart open? Is your mind open? Is your life open?

Rumi

  3. The first poem I heard from Rumi was,
    β€œThe minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.”
    It took me a little while before I understood it’s meaning.
    How are you? πŸ™‚ Fae.
