On This Good Friday



On a day
when the wind is perfect,
the sail just needs to open and the world is full of beauty.
Today is such a
day.

My eyes are like the sun that makes promises;
the promise of life
that it always
keeps

each morning.

The living heart gives to us as does that luminous sphere,
both caress the earth with great
tenderness.

This is a breeze that can enter the soul.
This love I know plays a drum. Arms move around me;
who can contain their self before my beauty?

Peace is wonderful,
but ecstatic dance is more fun, and less narcissistic;
gregarious He makes our lips.

On a day when the wind is perfect,
the sail just needs to open
and the love starts.

Today is such
a day.


*On a Day When the Wind is Perfect
Rumi

  2. As always... thank you for the poem. I hope today is "such a day" for you and that it's filled with love.

    Wonderful raven pair you photographed! There is a pair around my house that has been talking loudly to each other as they gather small branches from various trees and fly off with them. A nest is being built somewhere nearby!! I love that the collection of nest materials seems to be a very intimate activity for the couple... sealing their pair bond even more tightly. :-)
