A Wishful Spring & ….

“The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you

“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 doorsill
where
the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t
go back to sleep.”

(From “Quatrains”; the poetry of Jalâluddîn Rumi translated
by Coleman Barks)
